New Delhi: Oxford University Press (OUP) and other international publishers are withdrawing their lawsuit against Rameshwari Photocopy Service, a licensed vendor located in Delhi University’s North Campus.
The case has, over the last five years, attracted international attention as a test case for copyright violation.
OUP, Cambridge University Press and Taylor and Francis Group have together decided to withdraw the case against Rameshwari Photocopy from selling photocopies of parts of their books to students as they believe that it is not correct to engage in a legal battle with their stakeholders, that is educational institutions.
“We have taken a considered decision not to pursue the Delhi University Photocopy shop case further in the courts,” a joint statement from the publishers said. The publishers on Thursday filed an application with the Delhi high court to “withdraw as plaintiffs”.
