A Google Books decision?
An agreement of sorts was made between Google and some of the plaintiffs (the publishers) in the long-running court battle over whether Google Books overstepped its bounds when they scanned in-copyright works and put them online (ranging from full view to preview to snippet view, to no view, but at least searchable). This agreement doesn’t seem to end the debate – there are still other groups still continuing the lawsuit – but it’s a start.
It’s not clear exactly what is in the agreement, though it looks like the size of the snippets that one can view will increase. On the downside, it looks like publishers can have Google entirely take down their books from the site. This would be bad for us scholars: it’s incredibly useful being able to search through a bunch of recent secondary sources for some concept or term, to locate which books talk about it on which pages. If many publishers take their books away, I guess scholars will have to scan in those books for themselves in order to regain that capability. Can’t we all just get along?
