The Judge's Ruling in the GSU Case: What Does it Mean for Libraries?
On April 15, 2008, Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press and SAGE filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Georgia State University for content posted on electronic course reserves. Through multiple motions and filings, the issues in the case were narrowed before the trial began on May 17, 2011. On May 12th, Judge Evans issued a 350 page ruling, which analyzed 76 of the 99 alleged infringing course readings and which took her almost a year to complete. Judge Evans found only 5 instances of infringement in the readings she so carefully analyzed. This Discussion Group will focus on the analysis Judge Evans applied for fair use, what arguments she found persuasive by GSU and by the publishers, and how other libraries may choose to apply the Judge's fair use analysis in their own electronic course reserves processes.
