After running a classified ad in a student newspaper recruiting note takers, Stephen Oberhauser received a sternly worded e-mail from John Sandbrook, assistant provost of UCLA's College of Letters and Science.
Mr. Sandbrook denied that his e-mail to Mr. Oberhauser was provoked by concern about UCLA's note-taking service.
that be not an issue at all, Mr. Sandbrook said.That never entered my mind.The issue here is faculty control over what be going on inside and outside of the classroom..
In addition, Mr. Sandbrook said, UCLA has a written policy that spells out the administration's position on class notes.
It says specifically lecture notes are not to be used for commercial purposes or exchanged for compensation, he said.
Messrs.Green and Maser said they have not received written complaints from other institutions targeted by their company, but formidable opposition could be brewing.Businesses such as theirs have been a hot topic in higher education trade journals.
The professors strongly feel that they have intellectual effort of their own invested in [ their lectures ], Mr. Sandbrook said.So to have someone without the faculty's permission put that in the public domain crosses the line..

The emails, along with others obtained earlier under the California Public Records Act, show the Coliseum's top executive, John Sandbrook, granting nearly every wish USC had for the negotiations and then helping the university build and maintain political support for the lease.
In last weekend's article, the Times refers to a USC fan website Sandbrook and university officials used to urge USC alumni to post endorsement messages on the Coliseum's website. Though "Trojan Nation has been unleashed", as Sandbrook typed, further questioning by Parks revealed that out of the 2,800 positive responses, not one viewer had actually opened the lease to read it.
Furthermore, Parks wrote of a "cozy relationship" between Sandbrook and USC in a letter to the commission on May 11, 2012: "I have gone on record demanding the resignation of Mr. Sandbrook, partly because I believe he has been more an advocate of USC than for the Coliseum during the lease process..."
The aforementioned statement came in response to a complaint made to the Fair Political Practice Commission that Sandbrook was seeking employment with USC during lease negotiations, which would have been a major conflict of interest.
As Parks wrote in a letter to the Times editor on January 4, 2012, "Good old Jack showed more savvy when he traded the prized family cow for those alluring 'magic beans'.
His testimony was key to the L.A. Times/CalAware suit and helped cement Judge Lavin's opinion that Sandbrook testified falsely in connection with his claim that secrecy was warranted because of the threat of a lawsuit by USC.

John Sandbrook, the stadium's interim general manager, said USC administrators drafted the confidentiality pact and had it signed by him and three members of the Coliseum Commission, including Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe.
The one-paragraph agreement is undated, but Sandbrook said it was struck in late September 2011.
On Thursday, Sandbrook said the confidentiality pledge was "not on any other document communicated to the public" and the full commission never voted on it.
Sandbrook became interim general manager of the Coliseum about a month after the scandal broke. He testified that nearly a year later, the commission still had no formal policy prohibiting employees from destroying records.
As of Thursday, Sandbrook testified, he had not read the policy.
"With the benefit of hindsight, there are a variety of things I would have done differently," he said. Given the continuing upheaval at the commission, he added, "I should have left after the first month."
For the deposition, the commission had designated Sandbrook as the "person most knowledgeable" of the panel's procedures for searching for documents The Times sought under the California Public Records Act. But he repeatedly testified that he lacked such knowledge.
He also said he was not responsible for the commission's failure to respond to a Times request for records about missed contributions to retirement funds for stadium workers.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Luis A. Lavin made the finding about John Sandbrook in a sweeping condemnation of the commission's conduct during months of secret talks on the USC deal.
Sandbrook, a retired UCLA manager who took the helm of the commission as a financial scandal rocked it in 2011, testified for two days about the agency's private lease deliberations and compliance with the California Public Records Act.
Lavin found that Sandbrook falsely stated under oath his reasons why the lease negotiations could be kept secret.
After Lavin released his ruling Friday, City Councilman Bernard C. Parks, a former commissioner, called on the L.A. County district attorney's office to launch a perjury investigation of Sandbrook.
Sandbrook did not respond to a request for comment.
The judge also ordered the commission to release documents to The Times that it has refused to produce, such as communications between Sandbrook and USC during the lease negotiations.
