This series of videos analyzes the Google Book Search Settlement announced on October 28, 2008. The U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York will conduct a final fairness hearing for the class-action settlement beginning on October 7, 2009.
In this series of videos compare the Settlement to the most likely outcome of the litigation it resolves. I explore this counterfactual in three parts. (1) I assess the extent to which Googles assertion of fair use has trumped the copyright owners claim of copyright infringement. (2) I review the essential features of the Settlement Agreement. (3) I compare the Settlement to the likely outcome under the fair use doctrine.
