Quotes

" Google is yanking readers out of online bookstores," Authors Guild President Roxana Robinson said in a statement. " Google digitized authors' works in order to lure book buyers away from online booksellers to its turf, seeking to bring countless eyeballs to its ads."
"Google emptied the shelves of libraries and delivered truckloads of printed books to scanning centers, where the books were converted into digital format" the Guild's lawyers said
..." Libraries are pleased with the decision; the ALA said that "This ruling furthers the purpose of copyright by recognizing that Google’s Book search is a transformative fair use that advances research and learning.”"
...Instead, it "adds value to the original" and allows for "the creation of new information, new aesthetics, new insights and understandings."
