More debate on Google books

By Juliana Adelman and Kevin O’Sullivan

booksJust wanted to draw your attention to a few recent articles on the Google Book Search debate.  The Economist has run a couple of articles, mostly favourable.  Cleverly titled ‘Google’s big book case‘ and ‘Tome raider‘, they basically argue that the fact that the current settlement is flawed is not a reason to stop Google Book Search.  The Financial Times columnist is more sceptical, arguing for the US government to create its own digital book archive and (as I understand it) buy Google out.  I’m not sure if Europe would feel any more comfortable with this arrangement.  If anyone sees other interesting articles please do reply in the comments.
