Summaries of 11th Circuit Court of Appeals' Ruling on Georgia State Case

Posted By Andrew Horbal, Saturday, November 15, 2014

Last month the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals issued its ruling on Cambridge University Press et al. v. Patton, aka the "Georgia State case," which deals with electronic reserves in academic libraries. The full text of the decision can be found online here, but at 129 pages it doesn't make for quick or easy reading! Luckily a number of bloggers have weighed in with summaries of the decision. Here are three that do a particularly good job of summarizing it from the library perspective:

1. "11th Circuit Rules on Georgia State Fair Use Case" by Nancy Sims at the blog Copyright Librarian 

2. "GSU appeal ruling--the more I read, the better it seems" by Kevin Smith at the Scholarly Communications @ Duke blog

3. "Swimming in muddy waters," also by Kevin Smith at the Scholarly Communications @ Duke blog
