GA Board of regents wins copyright ruling

ATLANTA (AP) - A federal appeals panel is siding with the Georgia Board of Regents in a copyright infringement case.

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday found that the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy could not pursue damage claims against the state board on sovereign immunity grounds.

The association filed the lawsuit against the regents and former University of Georgia professor Flynn Warren Jr. in 2008. The lawsuit claimed that Warren took questions from the board's national licensing exam and distributed them in his course materials.

Warren has since retired and the lawsuit against him is still pending.
