Back in late October, when the proposed Google Book Search Settlement Agreement was released, Ip's What's Up posted a summary of the agreement followed, in November, by some reflections on the agreement. For those readers who are still interested in the Google Book Search settlement, we would like to direct you to a very interesting (and nicely short) post by Ray Corrigan at B2fxxx.
Ray provides a neat summary of a more detailed analysis done by James Grimmelmann. The post lists six principles followed by 16 recommendations addressing these principles, with nice hyperlinks to direct you to relevant parts of Gimmelmann's article. My favorite part is principle and recommendation 0:
- P0: The settlement should be approved
R0: Approve the settlement.
Kudos to both Corrigan and Grimmelmann for making this important information available and easily accessible!
