Delhi University Copy Shop Case

Joint statement by Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press and Taylor and Francis

“We have taken a considered decision not to pursue the Delhi University Copy shop case further in the courts and will today be filing an application with the Delhi High Court to withdraw as plaintiffs.  In addition, we will not be submitting an appeal to the Supreme Court of India, following the Delhi High Court Division Bench appeal decision of 9 December. 

“We continue to stand by our principles stated throughout this case. We support and seek to enable equitable access to knowledge for students and we understand and endorse the important role that course packs play in the education of students. We support our authors in helping them produce materials of the highest standard and we maintain that copyright law plays an important part in balancing the interests of those creating, curating, and disseminating learning materials with those requiring access to them. 

“We look forward to working even more closely with academic institutions, teachers and students to understand and address their needs while also ensuring that all those who contribute to and improve India’s education system—including authors and publishers—continue to do so for the long term.”
