Summary judgment was granted in favor of Google in the Authors Guild v. Google case. This case has been in litigation since 2005. There have been several attempts at settlement to no avail. Judge Denny Chin outlines his thoughts on Google’s reliance on Fair Use and granted a motion for summary judgment (which means the case has been dismissed) in Google’s favor! The Authors Guild may still appeal the decision, but for now let’s enjoy this victory! Please read the attached decision. Look for more posts soon.
Many Thanks to Peter Hirtle for sending out the decision!
