Suit Filed Against UCLA Alleging Video Streaming Infringes Copyright of Educational Video Publishers

Lutzker & Lutzker has filed a copyright infringement and breach of contract lawsuit in
federal court in Los Angeles on behalf of A.I.M.E., a national trade association of educational
video publishers, and one of its leading members, Ambrose Video Publishing, against The
Regents of the University of California and the Chancellor of UCLA. The educational
publishers charge that UCLA has illegally streamed Ambrose’s copy-protected DVDs hundreds
of times to students and faculty, both on and off campus, using a technology system called Video
Furnace. UCLA, which openly acknowledges the practice, defends online streaming of Ambrose
DVDs and thousands of other film titles, as “exempt” from copyright liability and a “fair use” of
copyrighted works. Read the complaint and press release on A.I.M.E.’s website.
