Google and the DOJ
The U.S. Justice Department has criticized the Google Book Settlement, saying that the proposals still present copyright and antitrust issues. In particular, it is concerned that the settlement in its current form forces authors
to "opt out" of having their books scanned and digitised, rather than opting in, which is the usual assumption for copyright law. (Telegraph)
