In 2012, a federal district court in Georgia ruled largely in favor of Georgia State University in the ongoing copyright lawsuit initiated by Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, and Sage Publishers. The decision was the first federal court decision specifically addressing fair use and electronic reserves. Plaintiff publishers appealed on many points of the ruling.
Oral arguments in the Cambridge v. Becker (GSU Copyright) lawsuit appeal are scheduled for the morning of November 19th at the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, room 339. Following the arguments, Georgia State University Library and American University Washington College of Law Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property will host a post-argument panel at 2:00 p.m. in the Rialto Center for the Arts lobby.
