Radio Program on the Google Book-Scan Settlement - NOW!

NOW! is Then! The show was on at 2:30 PST on November 25.

In the next few minutes, the National Public Radio Program "The Politics of Culture" will have a program on the Google Book Scanning Settlement.

TUE NOV 25, 2008
Host:

* Jonathan Kirsch

Produced by:

* Sarah Spitz

Host Jonathan Kirsch, an attorney specializing in intellectual property and publishing law, moderates a panel discussion on a landmark literary-legal settlement. It allows Google to scan and make available online many out-of-print but still-copyrighted books. The settlement portends a viable digital future for authors, publishers and libraries. Is there any downside?

Guests:

* Alexander McGillivray: Associate General Counsel for Products and Intellectual Property, Google
* James Gleick: Vice President, Authors' Guild
* Allan Robert Adler: Vice President for Legal and Government Affairs, Association of American Publishers
* Fred von Lohmann: Senior Staff Attorney, Electronic Frontier Foundation
If you miss it and are interested, look out for the podcast.

James Gleick is VP of the Author's Guild? I didn't know that. I think I've read nearly everything he's written.
