Abstract

Mark McKenna quoted in the USA Today article by Scott Martin "Google scores key legal victory in books lawsuit"

"This is a huge victory for Google, which had previously tried to resolve legal issues regarding Google Books by class-action settlement," says Mark McKenna, a law professor at the University of Notre Dame.

Law professor McKenna says the decision vindicates Google's massive book-scanning project on fair use grounds, yielding unnecessary an elaborate proposed compensation structure for the effort.

"The decision is sure to be appealed, as its implications are enormous," he says.
