Yale U. Complains That Chinese University Press Plagiarized Free Course Materials

What an interesting problem!  The Chinese University Press has published a bunch of material which Yale made available for free.  I don’t think the publication is a problem, but charging for it is a violation of the copyright restrictions that Yale made.  However, the University Press claims that the author gave them permission.  Who tracks what is really owned by whom in open learning environments, and who can give permission to change the conditions under which material is used?

An official from Shaanxi Normal University told Global Times that it secured permission from the author but not from Yale, and added that it is now investigating the matter.
