May 1 – May 8, 2011 Edition What Comes After the Google Book Settlement?
A free WEBcast this month will explore the demise of the Google Book Settlement and what it will mean for the publishing industry. The program will be presented by Digital Book World and Publishers Weekly at 1 PM EST / 11 AM PST May 10, 2011.
In late March, Judge Denny Chin rejected the Google Book Settlement, one of the most far-ranging legal deals in recent memory with extensive ramifications for book publishing. The settlement, as originally proposed, is dead. As the parties involved, including the Association of American Publishers, the Authors Guild, and Google, decide their next moves, many professionals want to know what comes now and how that will affect business down the line.
This timely WEBcast will examine the concerns of all the parties in the publishing industry affected by the rejection of the Google Settlement: publishers, libraries, authors, and more.
Heres an updated list of panelists:
Pamela Samuelson, Professor, Berkeley Law School & School of Information James Grimmelmann, Associate Professor of Law, New York Law School Andrew Albanese, Features Editor, Publishers Weekly
