This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
In law, v. is an abbreviation for versus and law case citations are generally written in this format.
So it means the legal decision Stanley v. Georgia. The new system isn't indebted to Stanley nor Georgia, but rather the United States Supreme Court decision in that legal case.
