According to the Chronicle of Higher Education:
A federal judge in Atlanta has handed down a long-awaited ruling in a lawsuit brought by three scholarly publishers against Georgia State University over its use of copyrighted material in electronic reserves. The ruling, delivered on Friday, looks mostly like a victory for the university, finding that only five of 99 alleged copyright infringements did in fact violate the plaintiffs' copyrights.K. Matthew Dames has provided a summary of the ruling, along with implications and notes that the publishers may file an injunction. Dames also notes that this ruling demonstrates the importance of academic institutions having copyright policies AND educating their faculty, staff and students about the policy.
I expect more analysis to be written about this case in the coming days and weeks, so if you are an academic librarian, keep your eyes open!
