Google wins book scanning case, judge cites many benefits

http://j.mp/I0P5kl  (Gigaom)

    Google has won a resounding victory in its eight-year copyright battle
    with the Authors Guild over the search giant's controversial decision
    to scan more than 20 million library and make the available on the
    internet.  In a ruling issued Thursday morning in New York, US Circuit
    Judge Denny Chin said the book scanning amounted to fair use because
    it was "highly transformative" and because it didn't harm the market
    for the original work.
