Submission + - Lecture Notes Considered Infringement (

I Don't Believe in Imaginary Property writes: "According to a new lawsuit, taking notes in class is copyright infringement. Of course, it's not quite that simple. The professor is partnered with an E-book maker that wants to sell the material themselves, and the people taking notes pay students to take good ones, then sell copies to everyone else. But that just means that the case will hinge upon whether or not lecture notes are fair use. Either way, I wonder how long it will be before you will have to sign a EULA whenever you walk into class.

[OT Note to Editors: a 'copyrights' section would sure be nice to have someday, though this section does a remarkably good job. Which is sad, if you think about it.]"
