The latest news in the Google Books settlement

Via the Association of College & Research Libraries:

“The Library Copyright Alliance (LCA) has released  “A Guide for the Perplexed Part IV: The Rejection of the Google Books Settlement,” an analysis of the latest decision in the Google Books Search case and its potential effect on libraries. The LCA is comprised of ALA, ACRL, and  the Association of Research Libraries (ARL).

This guide is the latest in a series prepared by LCA legal counsel Jonathan Band to help inform the library community about this landmark legal dispute.  In the Guide Part IV, Band explains why the Court rejected the proposed class action settlement, which would have allowed Google to engage in a wide variety of activities using scanned books.

Past guides and other LCA materials related to the case are available on the LCA website.”
