Google has now moved forward to claim the high ground in the battle over digital rights. Now that they have succeeded in this fight, they will significantly alter the digital rights of publishers and authors. Google continues to dominate the web-search world.

If you are a publisher or author, you had better do some homework on this one, and think about the consequences. There has not been much response from the publishing world to this legal decision. I find that interesting considering the implications and consequences associated with such a ruling.

A new informational monopoly is now in place! Googleopoly has arrived!

I’ve heard of this… Is this where Google will be able to put books online for anyone to search and read for free? How can they do that with copyright laws? Guess I need to do my research…

I’m not sure what this actually MEANS – and how can authors/publishers protect themselves?
