Pearson (PSO) suing Chegg (CHGG) alleging massive copyright infringement

Reddit Stocks

15/09/2021 - 01:50

Pearson Education (PSO) is suing Chegg for copyright infringement, stating " We’re seeking to protect the end of chapter questions and related content in thousands of Pearson’s higher education textbooks. Chegg’s sale of the answers to our end of chapter questions violates Pearson’s copyrights." Basically, Chegg sells a service that allows students to purchase access to answers to end-of-chapter solutions. Pearson alleges this is copyright infringement. https://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/digital/copyright/article/87352-pearson-education-sues-chegg-alleging-massive-copyright-infringement.html I know a number of publishers are dissatisfied with this type of practice, whether it is people recording solutions to simulations on YouTube, or publishing answers to questions on sites like Chegg. Note that this isn't new; sites like cheathouse have been around since the late 1990's. However, in this case, it seems directly publishing the questions and answers at the end of the chapter has given Pearson an opening to sue. I am certain other publishers will be watching closely. Either way this is not going to resolve itself soon. I own no shares of either company. I've done a little freelance work for Pearson, which is where I heard about this initially.   submitted by   /u/rederick57 [link]   [comments]

  9. Company Lawsuits (09/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Is anyone else sick of lawyers outright stealing money invested? Everyday I get an alert of this law firm is suing x company I own shares in for stockholder benefit. This may be way off topic as I am not talking about any specific stock or position but feel it is very relevant and the most related reddit location. I feel like we as retail investors are getting fleeced not only by large institutional shareholders but by large law firms that always seem to sue ‘on behalf of shareholders’ and I know nothing i can do about it. In the thousands of letters ive received either electronically or via actual mail I dont think Ive received one stamps worth of actual money back although I have seen the millions in legal expenses companies I own stock in pay out to defend,pay or settle. I wish there was a law firm out there that would start suing the other law firms for their litigious nature and theft without any return of monetary compensation to the shareholders they are suing on behalf.   submitted by   /u/JGDen [link]   [comments]
