BV Engineering V UCLA
UCLA bought one copy of a computer program, and then mass duplicated
it. BV Engineering argued that UCLA must purchase copies instead of
duplicating. UCLA said that because they are guvmint, the copyright law
doesn't apply to them, and that because they are STATE guvmint, that they
are intrinsically exempt from being sued in FEDERAL court for copyright

UC (and particularly UCLA) has a history of refusal tocomply with
copyright laws.
