Google + Authors + Publishers + Libraries

After a long negotiation, along with the Authors Guild, and the Association of American Publishers (AAP) on behalf of a broad class of authors and publishers worldwide, Google announced last week that we've reached an agreement that will greatly expand online access to millions of in-copyright books in the U.S. If approved by the court, the agreement will also resolve the two U.S. Google Book Search lawsuits.
Here are a few links worth reading: Google blog post, joint press release, executive summary [pdf] and Google site.
Information for authors and publishers is at the Settlement Administration site.
