Plaintiffs file proposed order for injunctive relief following Georgia State University ruling
Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, and SAGE Publications Inc. have filed a proposed order for injunctive relief with the Court in the Georgia State University e-reserves case, in response to Judge Orinda Evans' direction in her May 11 opinion following her finding that Georgia State University's flawed 2009 copyright policy caused the infringement of some of our works.
Tracking the Judge's ruling, this proposed injunction aims to reduce the chances that GSU will in the future infringe works posted to its eReserve and uLearn systems. Many universities strive to create and implement reasonable copyright policies that respect the balance between fair use in any format and fair compensation to the authors and publishers who create academic works. Our proposed order for injunctive relief would ensure that GSU's practices and policies achieve this same balance.
Universities and academic publishers are longtime partners in the dissemination of scholarship, and our exploration of the transition to digital delivery of scholarship is simply the most recent chapter in this shared mission. We will continue to work in partnership with the academic community to ensure that universities can access high-quality learning materials through efficient and accessible licensing solutions and through the robust but respectful fair use of copyrighted materials that is as critical to teaching as it is to publishing.
We will determine our next steps based on the outcome of this proposed order.
