Google Books, Copyright Reform and Tomorrowland

We’ve commented on this topic before — the Google Books case is a very good bellwether for the landscape of IP and copyright law in the digital age.   May we kindly direct your attention to i09’s very helpful column ‘5 Ways The Google Book Settlement Will Change The Future of Reading.’

From the second paragraph, “The Google Book Settlement could easily be the twenty-first century’s most important shift in how we deal with copyright in the world of publishing. To understand it, you need a little back story on the previous giant shift in copyright law, which happened about twelve years ago.”
