Google Uses Blog to Defend Print Lawsuit

Battelle likes the fact that Google is using its own blog to defend the recent lawsuit filed by the Authors Guild.

From the Google post…

Let’s be clear: Google doesn’t show even a single page to users who find copyrighted books through this program (unless the copyright holder gives us permission to show more). At most we show only a brief snippet of text where their search term appears, along with basic bibliographic information and several links to online booksellers and libraries.
