Google Books won another (and possibly the last?) round against the copyright drudges, or so we are to believe. Is anyone surprised? I know I’m not. In the latest chapter, the 2nd U.S. Court of Appeals ruled in early October that Google’s book-scanning project is a-ok, copacetic, fine with them, it doesn’t matter — you get the point. The “creators” in this case, authors under the auspices of the Authors Guild to those of us who work around books, will appeal again, but it appears at this point that they are spitting in the wind.
