The Internet Archive’s OpenLibrary project violates copyright, the Authors Guild warns

Malgorzata's bookmarks 2018-06-22

Summary: seemed to feel that making digital copies of paper books and loaning them out as if they were the paper books as long as it restricted the paper books from circulating while the digital media were out was a fair use of those books. Even though the Authors Guild had been absolutely gung-ho about chasing Google all the way to the Supreme Court just for serving up snippets, the Internet Archive checking out entire books was somehow beneath its notice.
