Linkable + Thinkable: Google Edition
Favorite bits from three thought-provoking posts on Google + the world's best research libraries:
Michael Madison @ Madisonian Theory: "A first thought: Its one more example, and a pretty important one, of the fading of the lines separating copyright law from communications law. Is Google Print an information conduit? A massive, rogue P2P technology? Is it a contributory infringer? A publisher? From whom, if anyone, does it need licenses, and who, if anyone, should regulate it, and how, if at all?"
James Grimmelmann @ LawMeme: "I look forward tremendously to having all that public domain material online: watch out publishers, because you're about to have to start competing with free in a whole new way."
Scott Rosenberg: "The public has a big interest in making sure that no one business has a chokehold on the flow of human knowledge."
