"US academic publisher the American Chemical Society (ACS) is demanding $4.8 million in damages from Sci-Hub owner Alexandra Elbakyan as part of its request for a default judgement in their copyright infringement dispute.

ACS filed a lawsuit in June, alleging that Elbakyan had made most of its catalogue of more than 150,000 research papers available on the Sci-Hub website illegally.

The society also claimed that Sci-Hub had cloned aspects of its website and committed trademark infringement and counterfeiting.

Elbakyan was made aware of the litigation, but didn’t respond, leading to ACS seeking a default judgement in the case."
