Educational Publishers Bring Legal Action Against Ebook Pirate Sites

Five educational publishers—Macmillan Learning, Cengage Group, Elsevier, McGraw Hill, and Pearson—obtained a preliminary injunction from the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against 60 sites that are selling illegal, unlicensed copies of their ebooks. They are concerned that the sites use online ads to entice customers away from legitimate content toward the illegal versions. Search engines, web hosts, ISPs, and others that are facilitating these sites’ activities are ordered to stop doing so.

The publishers had filed suit against these sites on Aug. 9, 2021, when a temporary restraining order was granted to shut them down and halt their facilitators. This preliminary injunction extends this suspension through the pendency of the litigation.

For more information, read the press release.
