Judge Pulls Plug on Google’s Digital Library

March 23, 2011

A NY judge decided yesterday that the $125 million dollar deal between Google and the book industry smacked of anti-trust problems, despite the appeal of making so many works available to the public. Google has prepared 15 million(!) books for this project. He also expressed concern about Google’s ability to use books without consent of many authors. This promises to be an ongoing discussion as the authors, booksellers, and Internet community attempt to compromise.
