Pearson Education Copyright Litigation

1 minute read


Pearson Education, Inc., a publisher of textbooks and other educational material, has been subject to a series of individual copyright infringement claims based on alleged unlicensed use of photographs in its publications. Compass Lexecon affiliate Doug Lichtman and Compass Lexecon experts Lynette Neumann and Bradley Reiff are assisting Pearson in estimating actual damages and Pearson’s profit attributable to the alleged copyright infringement in a number of the individual cases brought against Pearson. The Compass Lexecon analysis has shown that the profits attributable to the alleged infringement are no more than the estimated actual damages. Since October 2012, Reiff has filed expert reports in several different cases, which have been dismissed or settled favorably for Pearson. Compass Lexecon is working with Brendan Kehoe of Pearson Education, and Kevin Fee and Jordana Rubel of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP.
