Delhi High Court Decision Regarding Photocopying of Textbooks and Copyright Infringement Comes Down

After a recent decision issued in India by the Delhi High Court, it is now even more important to record U.S. trademarks and copyrights with the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol. On September 16, 2016, the Delhi High Court ruled that the defendants, a photocopy company and university, did not infringe the copyrights of two large publishing companies by copying textbooks to compile course packs for teachers and students.

After a recent decision issued in India by the Delhi High Court, it is now even more important to record U.S. trademarks and copyrights with the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol. On September 16, 2016, the Delhi High Court ruled that the defendants, a photocopy company and university, did not infringe the copyrights of two large publishing companies by copying textbooks to compile course packs for teachers and students.

The court ruled that the defendants' acts did not constitute copyright infringement and were acts of fair use. This case highlights one example of legally reproducing copyrighted work abroad and the possibility of these foreign reproductions entering the United States. Thus, copyright and trademark holders should record their U.S. trademarks and copyrights with the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol to reduce the risk of infringing and counterfeit products entering the United States.
