OUP, Others, Sue Georgia State University Over eReserve Course Packs

Three publishers, Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, and Sage Publications filed suit against Georgia State University over use of electronic materials in course reserve and online course sites such as Blackboard.  The suit was filed on April 15.  The suit has the blessing of the Association of American Publishers.  Georgia State was cited as a target for being particularly uncooperative in resolving  the issue according to news reports.  The AAP has a FAQ on eReserves that indicates a willingness to support them provided that publishers get paid.  A plaintiff press release on the suit is available at Graphic Arts Online, among other places.

Details are in the Atlanta Business Chronicle, Publishers Weekly, and the New York Times.
