Fair Use or Exploitation?: The Google Book Search Controversy
Baksik, Corinna
portal: Libraries and the Academy, v6 n4 p399-415 Oct 2006
The Google Book Search Library Project, in which millions of books from libraries will be scanned and made searchable on the Web, has led to controversy and legal action. Publishers are suing Google for copyright infringement, while Google claims their use falls under the fair use privilege of the "Copyright Act". An overview of the library project is followed by an examination of the controversy and a look at the beta program in practice. (Contains 117 notes.)
