    A lot of non-commercial materials often ask to not re-distribute them as well. As far as this goes I don't think FedEx has anything to worry about, they aren't making money off the materials, they are making money off of the service they provide. 


    I'm confused did the school expect to get a service for free because their materials were free?

    No; no school had anything to do with other than going "FedEx, please to print." The makers of the materials the school is using are suing FedEx because they feel that FedEx is making money off of their materials (by being paid to print them.)

    It might just be a case of suing to protect their IP.


    I know seems foolish, and it is foolish as well. A bug, so to speak, is present in the US legal system. You may have a situation where you will almost certainly loose if you sue, yet not suing may significantly weaken your rights further down the line.


    To me this case feels a bit like that. I wouldn't be surprised if Great Minds do not actually expect to win.

    Except that it's trademarks that need to be defended or lost - not licensing terms or copyrights. I feel like someone in Great Minds' legal department has no clue what they're doing.

    @taarna23 Oh, okay got you that makes far more sense. Still feel there is not much of a case here if you ask me.
