Vincent v. City Colls. of Chicago, 06-3082

In a suit for copyright and trademark violations, breach of contract and fraud, summary judgment for certain defendants is affirmed where there was no copyright violation in the use of plaintiff's work as a teaching text. Summary judgment is reversed where: 1) there was a genuine issue of material fact concerning one defendant's receipt of a withdrawal of consent to reproduce; 2) the district court improperly held aspects of plaintiff's complaint to a fact-pleading standard; and 3) the complaint sufficiently outlined specific details pertaining to the fraud claim.
