Google Book Search
Marcus has written on the legality of the Google Print program, now renamed to Google Book Search.Â He cites a six-page Congressional Research Service report that looks at the issue from a lightweight legal perspective.Â Partly because of my membership in the Young Conservatives Union, partly because I enjoy taunting the techno-establishment whom I’m supposed to be digitally brainwashed by based on my age and occupation, and partly because I think I’m right, I’ve written a comment digesting the issue and generally opposing the project.Â If you’re interested, read all three writings and comment over at Marcus’ World (or here).
I just posted a reply to Bill’s analysis on my site. Go here if you’re interested: http://mbanks.typepad.com/my_weblog/2006/01/google_book_sea.html
Come on–It’s time for everyone to ride the intellectual property/digital copyright wave!
