University Supports Google over Print Lawsuit
Yesterday the American Authors Guild filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Google over its Google Print Library project. The first university library that comes with a supporting statement for Google is...the University of Michigan:
"We continue to be enthusiastic about our partnership with Google, and we are confident that this project complies with copyright law. The overarching purpose of copyright law is to promote progress in society. In doing so, it is always a balancing act between the limited rights of the author and the rights of the public."
