Just 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.
