On remand in a dispute between three academic publishers and Georgia State University about the university’s practice of distributing to students digital excerpts of copyrighted works without paying the publishers, a federal district court misinterpreted the mandate of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Atlanta and misapplied the defense of fair use when it granted partial declaratory and injunctive relief against the university. The appellate court vacated the judgment entered on remand, and the matter was remanded for further proceedings (Cambridge University Press v. Albert, October 19, 2018, Pryor, W.).
