Judge Rejects Google’s Deal to Digitize Books; New York Times, 3/22/11

Miguel Helft, New York Times; Judge Rejects Google’s Deal to Digitize Books:

"A federal judge in New York rejected Google’s $125 million class-action settlement with authors and publishers, delivering a blow to the company’s ambitious plan to build the world’s largest digital library and bookstore.

The deal was rejected by Judge Denny Chin of United States District Court, who said the deal went too far in granting Google rights to exploit books without permission from copyright owners."
