<This case is important because it was the first big case that publishers took legal action against a University for copyright violation. It is important to note two things about the case: 1) There was no verdict but only a settlement and 2) the NYU case was an easy case for the publishers to win because of the large amount of copying which was done (entire anthologies).>
