Pearson Education, Inc. et al v. Boundless Learning Inc.
No. 12-cv-1986 (S.D.N.Y. 2013)
Represented Defendant Boundless Learning, Inc. (“Boundless”) in a recently settled case in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York brought by three publishers of college-level textbooks in biology, economics and psychology, respectively. The publishers claimed Boundless infringed Plaintiffs’ copyrights in violation of the U.S. Copyright Act and engaged in unfair competition and false advertising under the U.S. Trademark Act by creating free, electronic textbooks for students that covered the same factual concepts and topics as Plaintiffs’ textbooks and were marketed as alternatives to their products.
