New York Law School Seminar on Google Book Settlement
The Institute for Information Law & Policy at New York Law School recently organized an event called D Is For Digitize on the topic of the proposed class action settlement between Google and U.S. publisher and author organizations.
Those organizations objected to the search giant’s mass scanning of in-copyright books.
The event brought together academics and lawyers who looked at the settlement through the lenses of copyright, civil procedure, antitrust, information policy, literary culture, and the publishing industry.
Videos for many of the presentations are available online.
LibraryLaw Blog has blogged the event.
