U.S. judge boosts Google 'fair use' defense of digital books

    Chin also dismissed a suggestion from Rosenthal that the U.S. Congress
    should decide the issue.  "Does anything get done in Congress these
    days?" Chin said. "What are you suggesting? That I don't decide ...
    and wait for Congress?"  Chin's criticism of the plaintiffs' arguments
    echoed that of a three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of
    Appeals, which appeared to be skeptical of the lawsuit in July.
    Google's project could have "enormous value for our culture," Circuit
    Judge Barrington Parker said in July. "This is something that has
    never happened in the history of mankind."
