Judge Chin`s ruling changes little for Google users. About two million books that are available to the public, such as works by William Shakespeare, can currently be viewed for free on the Google Books website. […] Google Books users can currently view long previews of an additional two million books that are copyrighted and printed, thanks to agreements between Google and tens of thousands of publishers that were separated from the regulations. Millions of other, but sold-out, copyrighted books are currently available in Google Books in a shorter “snippet view.” If the transaction had been approved, users could have seen longer previews and perhaps purchased those books.  There are also published books which, as a novelty, contain only empty pages. Authors and publishers began to argue that the Google Library Partner project infringed copyright, despite restrictions on the results they made available to users, because they were not asked in advance by Google to put online scans of their books. In August 2005, Google stated that they would stop digitizing books by November 2005 to allow authors and publishers to choose their books from the program.  The deadline for the review of class actions and objections has been set at an expedited timetable, with objections to be filed until January 28, 2010 and fairness hearings on February 18.  Although the volume of complaints was lower than the original count, they remained critical of the billing conditions. The DOJ also remained critical of the transaction at the fairness hearing, saying that cartel issues and abuse of dominance remained in the transaction, as it allowed Google to circumvent the typical fines for copyright penalties that were not imposed on any other company.
  The Open Book Alliance, which had verified the first comparison and developed a framework it had proposed to the parties for comparison 2.0, stated that the new terms of comparison still allowed Google to maintain its monopoly on access and distribution of e-books, among others.   In note books, relatively short pieces of music, which span two or four pages, often have to be arranged, which minimizes the number of page changes for the performer. For example, a trilateral work (from the left sheet) with immediate effect of a two-sided work part includes a turn of page during each work. If the trilateral work (on the right sheet) was immediately followed on an empty side, the two-sided work extends to the left and right sides, which depreciates the need for a side change during the second work. Deliberately empty pages can also prevent a lateral turn during a difficult passage. The publishing industry and groups of authors criticized the inclusion by the project of excerpts of copyrighted works as an offence. Although Google takes steps to provide full text only for public sector works and only provides an online summary for books that are still copyrighted, publishers argue that Google does not have the right to copy full-fledged copyrighted texts and store them in large quantities in their own databases.  In October 2009, Google responded to persistent criticism by saying that digitizing books and using them online would protect the world`s cultural heritage. Google co-founder Sergey Brin said: “The famous library in Alexandria burned three times, 48 BC, 273 AD and 640 AD, as did the Library of Congress, where a fire destroyed two-thirds of the collection in 1851.
I hope that such destruction will not happen again, but history would suggest something else.  This characterization was rebuked by Pam Samuelson, a UC Berkeley law professor, who stated that Google Books, in my view, offers considerable public benefits.
