U.S. District Court Judge Orinda D. Evans granted Georgia State University's motion for directed verdict in part in the Cambridge University Press et al. v. Patton et al. case. A directed verdict for the contributory infringement claim was granted.
Here's an excerpt from "Publishers Lose Another Claim as GSU Trial Comes to a Close" by Brandon Butler:
And just like that, Judge Orinda Evans threw out the second of the publishers' three claims. Now indirect infringement is the only remaining claim against GSU. . . .
This claim is the hardest one for GSU to avoid because, in theory, the publishers just have to find one infringement by one professor to prove GSU is an 'indirect infringer.'
