Law Professor James Grimmelmann Discusses Google Book Search Settlement Decision on Bloomberg TV
Professor James Grimmelmann from the New York Law School has been one of the legal experts the media has been turning to for comments about the Google Book Settlement since it was announced about 10 days ago.
A smart move by the media.
Grimmelmann and his students have done an outstanding job providing analysis and access to primary documents since GBS was first announced. You can find a lot of the material on The Public Index web site as well as his New York Law School web page.
He was also part of a GBS panel at the ALA Annual Meeting last year.
Recently, Professor Grimmelmann was interviewed on Bloomberg Television and the video now available online.
The interview runs about 10 minutes and provides an excellent overview to both the Google Books program (history, scanning, etc.) and the recent court decision.
Note: We will add this post to our collection of Google Book Settlement Decision resources.
