Google Book Settlement Discussions

There’s been surprising little discussion of the Google Book Search settlement outside of the US but I think it is worth paying attention to. It has important implications for libraries, but also for copyright law.

To catch up on the discussion, here’s some good resources.

The actual settlement: http://books.google.com/googlebooks/agreement/

A Discussion Around the Google Book Search Settlement with Alexander Macgillivray of Google (soon to be of Twitter)

And a workshop at Harvard’s Berkman Center about the next steps and alternative approaches.

Enjoy.
