Google Books settlement amicus brief

From Library Journal, news that The American Library Association (ALA), the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), and the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) will file a joint amicus brief in the Google Books settlement approval hearing.

The amicus brief will focus on five areas of concern for libraries: access, privacy, intellectual freedom, equitable treatment, and terms of use. The brief will be written by attorney Jonathan Band, author of the Guide for the Perplexed: Libraries and the Google Library Project Settlement.

More details (a few) about the discussions that led to the decision to file an amicus brief are posted as an ARL Press Release.
