COPYRIGHT Two lawsuits have been filed alleging copyright infringement in the reproduction of test questions. Washington, D.C.-based Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), the developer, administrator and owner of the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT), sued New York-based test-preparation company The Princeton Review Inc. for copyright infringement, misappropriation of trade secrets and fraud. AAMC alleges that “Princeton Review has engaged in a deliberate course of conduct intended to compromise the confidentiality of AAMC’s secure, copyrighted MCAT test forms” by having employees take the MCAT for purposes of memorizing the questions for use in preparing future test takers. AAMC claims that test takers have to sign a statement agreeing to AAMC’s rules that ban the memorizing and reproduction of questions. In addition, the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE), the Madison, Wis.-based developer and administrator of the Multistate Bar Examination, sued for copyright infringement two law professors who offer bar exam test preparation materials. NCBE alleges that the defendants interviewed bar applicants who failed the exam and then disclosed “reconstructed” test questions to applicants preparing for the bar exam. Association of American Medical Colleges v. The Princeton Review Inc., No. 1:03CV00716 (D.D.C. March 21); National Conference of Bar Examiners v. Saccuzzo, No. 03 CV 0737 (S.D. Calif. April 14). FOR PLAINTIFF (AAMC): Robert A. Burgoyne and Caroline M. Mew, Fulbright & Jaworski, Washington FOR PLAINTIFF (NCBE): Robert A. Burgoyne, Fulbright & Jaworski, Washington; Robert S. Brewer Jr., McKenna Long & Aldridge, San Diego
