A Guide for the Perplexed: Libraries and the Google Library Project Settlement

Thursday, November 13, 2008

Abstract

The author discusses the October 28, 2008, Google, the Authors Guild, and the Association of American Publishers settlement of the litigation concerning the Google Library Project. Under the project, Google has been scanning into its search database millions of books provided by major research libraries and other sources. For those books not in the public domain, the publishers and authors claimed that Google's scanning infringed their copyrights. The settlement still requires the approval of the presiding judge in the US district court in New York because the case was brought as a class action on behalf of all affected rightsholders.
