Today, Google, the Authors Guild, and the Association of American Publishers announced the signing of a settlement agreement in the ongoing copyright litigation over the Google Library Project.
I’m proud to be a member of the legal team representing Google in this matter.
Class members can get information about the settlement here, and members of the public can get more information from Google here. If you’re looking for more detail than those sites provide, the proposed class notice (39 page PDF) goes into greater depth, as does the brief in support of plaintiffs’ motion for preliminary settlement approval (48 page PDF). And if you’re interested in the real nitty gritty, the proposed settlement agreement is available here.
