Three of the country’s largest college textbook publishers have filed a lawsuit against Follett Corp. charging the company with selling counterfeit textbooks. The suit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York by Cengage, McGraw-Hill Education, and Pearson Education. The complaint claims Follett engaged in copyright and trademark infringement, as well as trademark counterfeiting. According to the complaint, Follett, through both its college stores and distribution businesses, has been selling counterfeit copies of their books. The activity has been going on, the plaintiffs say, despite their repeated attempts to work with Follett to eliminate such sales. The three publishers that filed the suit allege Follett has “long recognized” that, by buying books from non-reputable third party sellers, it is knowingly filling its inventory with a selection of counterfeit titles.
