 Greenberg v. National Geographic Society
The National Geographic Society ("Society") purports to be the world's largest nonprofit scientific and educational organization at approximately 9.5 million members, and is responsible for the publication of National Geographic Magazine ("Magazine").
Greenberg initiated an infringement action against the Society, National Geographic Enterprises, and Mindscape, alleging five counts of copyright infringement, two of which are relevant here: count "III" addressed the Society's reuse of Greenberg's photographs in the CNG, generally, and count "V" specifically addressed the use of his diver photograph in the Sequence.
This analysis is totally consistent with the conduct of the Society when it registered its claim of copyright in the CNG (under the title "108 Years of National Geographic on CD-ROM").

 CLE - Taxation of Internet Transactions: Nat'l Geographic Soc'y v. California
The Society argues, however, that its contacts with customers in California were related solely to its mail-order sales by means of common carrier or the mail, that the two offices played no part in that activity, and that therefore this case is controlled by Bellas Hess.
We conclude that the Society's continuous presence in California in offices that solicit advertising for its magazine provides a sufficient nexus to justify that State's imposition upon the Society of the duty to act as collector of the use tax.
Appellant Society argues that under the California Supreme Court's "slightest presence" test § 6203 and § 6204 could be applied even if the Society maintained no offices in the State but merely owned a parking lot.

 National Geographic Society/Grosvenor
The National Geographic Society was co-founded in 1888 by Gardineer G. Hubbard, Bell's father-in-law.
Virtually everything known of Bell comes from the Grosvenors, a family so blessed a century-past with his name, the largess of his success - and of the National Geographic Society - that they've taken on the trappings of royalty while deifying their quasi-Canadian heritage and, it appears, all things Canadian.
Thus he revealed that he and the National Geographic Society have never told the true story of these events."
