  • [The deal is]“breathtaking in scope, groundbreaking for publishers and authors, and trailblazing for intellectual property in general.” - Richard Sarnoff, chairman of the AAP
  • 130+ Pages
  • $125M
  • “Where does this leave the role of the publisher? Anyone can publish content now and peer reviewing can take place in an entirely different way.” -Phil Bradley, blogger and library consultant
  • Book Rights Registry
  • What Rightsholders Got
  • “We had a major disagreement with Google about copyright law... We still do, and probably always will.” But he said that the parties had been “able to set those issues aside” for what “may be the biggest book deal in U.S. publishing history.” -Paul Aiken, Author’s Guild executive director
  • What Google Got
  • What Americans Got
  • “Although it is only a US settlement I think it is going to set a precedent or standard worldwide. The business model is going to become a paradigm for everybody.” -Mark Cardin, VP of Mylibrary provider Ingram Micro
  • What Libraries Got
  • “This is a service that libraries, because of copyright restrictions, could not offer on their own and goes well beyond what would have been possible, even if Google had prevailed in defending the lawsuit.” -Paul Courant
  • Library Pricing
  • Library Types • Fully Participating: lets Google scan, retains copies, follows security provisions • Cooperating: lets Google scan, without copies and associated security provisions • Public Domain: Provides with Google Public Domain works • Other: Allows scanning without participating in the settlement
  • The Research Corpus
  • Next Actions • Soon: Registry to begin • 6/11/09: Court approval • Rightsholders will have 120 days to opt out (and still, after that) • Mid/late-2009: Final approval expected • 2010: Likely to go into effect
  • “IMHO, this is a good deal that could be the basis for something really fantastic.” -Lawrence Lessig
