Georgia State University Lawsuit Goes Another Round

According to Andrew Albanese at Publishers Weekly, “For a second time, publishers have won an appeal in the long-running Georgia State University (GSU) e-reserves lawsuit. However, the case was once again remanded to the district court, giving district court judge Orinda Evans yet another crack at deciding the case.

“In a concise 25-page decision filed late on October 19, a three-judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously vacated Evans’ latest decision in part, and upheld it in part, and once again sent the case back to her with instructions for weighing what would be her third verdict.” The suit, which was originally filed in April 2008 by Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, and SAGE and supported by Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) and the Association of American Publishers (AAP), “alleges that GSU administrators systematically encouraged faculty to offer students unlicensed digital copies of course readings (known as e-reserves) as a no-cost alternative to traditionally licensed course-packs.”
