Georgia State University Declared 'Prevailing Party' in Copyright Battle
by George H. Pike
A federal court in Georgia declared Georgia State University (GSU) to be the "prevailing party" in its ongoing copyright infringement battle with Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, and SAGE Publications ("Publishers"). In an Aug. 10, 2012 court order that closes out the trial phase of the lawsuit, the court denied the Publishers' request that GSU maintain detailed records of its use of copyrighted works, clarified several points on the fair use of works by universities, and ordered that the Publishers pay GSU's attorneys fees.

Expand Your Search Engine Options
by Paula J. Hane
One of the most popular bylined pieces in our NewsBreaks/NewsLink Spotlight collection has been my April 1, 2010 article, "Alternative Search Engines Offer Rich Options." Since things have changed considerably in the last 2-plus years, I decided it was time to look at what some of the most useful options now are for search engines. While Google continues its domination of the search market, some enterprising folks continue to seek out alternatives—for additional features, interface preferences, spam avoidance, or privacy and security reasons.
