As reported by NewYorkLawJournal.com:
In a putative class action filed in the Southern District of New York on Feb. 22, the lawyers are seeking damages, disgorgement of profits and a declaratory judgment against West Publishing Corp. and LexisNexis for engaging in the “unabashed wholesale copying of thousands of copyright-protected works created by, and owned by, the attorney and law firms.”
West Publishing Corp. is an arm of Thomson-Reuters. ALM, also the publisher of the New York Law Journal, licenses its content to LexisNexis, an arm of Reed Elsevier Inc. Both sell digital licenses for users to access online databases.
