Bookbabble Episode 40: The Incredibly Unprepared Discussion on the Google Book Search Copyright Settlement

Bookbabble Episode 40: The Incredibly Unprepared Discussion on the Google Book Search Copyright Settlement
Recorded 27 July 2009
Babblers: Bjorn, Gem, Renee, Lone, Marcel, Donny

 

Synopsis:
The babblers look at the Google Book Search settlement case, and discuss the fate of books that are out of print, but still in copyright (known as orphan works).  Orphan works are currently a part of the books that are being digitized in libraries around the world under the Google Library Project and made available for searching under Google’s Book Search website.  The babblers are not incredibly prepared with this topic (because it was a surprise! Sort of…), but still managed to get an hour of chitchat out of this.  This could be either because we’re naturally intelligent and analytical, or we just like to talk.
