New Report on Filings in the Google Books Settlement

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL), the American Library Association (ALA), and the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) have issued a report that summarizes in a few pages of charts some key information about the hundreds of filings that have been submitted to the federal district court presiding over the Google Books litigation. The report was prepared by ARL law and policy Fellow Brandon Butler.

Some parties expressed important concerns about the settlement, but they chose to urge careful government oversight rather than to oppose the settlement entirely. In fact, this is the position taken by members of the library associations in their comments to the court. Filers with reservations and concerns are listed in their own chart, separate from the supporters and opponents. And the report noted that while many rightsholders and interested observers have announced their views publicly, the charts represent only the views of those parties who filed with the court.

The report is available at
