Google Wins Searchable Books

Spread the love


Google won in the SDNY and may now make millions of copyrighted scanned books searchable on the Internet. A New York judge Denny Chin of the SDNY dismissed a lawsuit from the U.S. Authors’ Guild, seeking money simply for authors because their books are searchable. Quiet honestly, digitization of works is furthering knowledge and  I myself have been taken to a book by Google and then bought it whereas I would never have done so otherwise. Here is one decision I actually agree with out the SDNY. Of course it did not involve government interest so it was rational and fair.
