The proposed consent judgment in publishers’ Internet Archive lawsuit is made permanent but leaves some concerned about a limitation.
A proposed judgment bars Internet Archive from of offering ‘unauthorized copies’ of book publishers’ copyrighted content inside and outside the United States.
Threats to copyright protections, publishing leaders at London Book Fair will say today, are as broadly international as the Internet.
The ruling against the Internet Archive for its “Open Library” lending is a major win for book publishers and creative industries.
As another court date in the Internet Archive lawsuit approaches this week, the International Publishers Association has led an amicus brief.
They sued the Internet Archive in June 2020 for copyright infringement. Now, American publishers file for summary judgment.
Saying that the Internet Archive operates ‘the digital equivalent of traditional library lending,’ the nonprofit answers a test of Controlled Digital Lending.
Alleging ‘a profound disrespect for the value chain of copyright,’ the Association of American Publishers goes to court over the Internet Archive’s ‘National Emergency Library’ and ‘Open Library.’
In its World Intellectual Property Day statement, the International Publishers Association warns against ‘a pretext of emergency access.’
Capping cries of foul from publishing players, the Internet Archive gets a letter from Thom Tillis, the Senate’s intellectual property chair: No user ‘ can unilaterally create an emergency copyright act.’
