Google Book Search Lawsuit Gets Conference Treatment
New York Law School will host a three-day conference about the Google Book Search lawsuit starting on October 8 — one day after the rescheduled fairness hearing that may decide the case’s future.
You may recall that the judge in the case has already given tentative approval to the $125 million settlement, but about six weeks before the official approval was due, the judge announced a four-month delay so that interested parties could review the proposed settlement.
The conference, called “D is for Digitize,” will include interested parties from publishing and academia who “will examine the settlement through the lenses of copyright, civil procedure, antitrust, the publishing industry, information policy, and literary culture.”
