Official Code of Georgia Annotated

Summary
The Official Code of Georgia Annotated or OCGA is the compendium of all laws in the U.S. state of Georgia.

The state held that it retained sole copyright in the code and that the authorized publisher held copyright to the annotations, though the laws of the state were the combination of the code and the annotations.
