American Library Association Website on Google Book Settlement
In late 2008, Google and associations representing U.S. authors and publishers came to a deal to end a class action lawsuit for copyright infringement launched against the search giant.
Google is scanning millions of books, including many still covered by copyright, in order to make them available over the Internet.
The proposed settlement is still before the courts in New York City.
The ALA site contains:
- official settlement documents
- summaries and analysis
- court "briefs" (facta)
- news stories
