Week 2 (Oct. 4): The origins of the Google Books dispute | Digital ADR

Original Creator: Tom Rubin Current Version: Tom Rubin Show/Hide

Various factors – including lengthened copyright term, elimination of the registration requirement, and increased ability to access works – have led to stresses in the copyright system and opportunities for legal and technological innovation. Enter Google Books. We will examine the legal landscape that brought about the project, the agreements with libraries that made it possible, and the two resulting lawsuits that followed. [first half of class]

Disputes between content owners and technology innovators have long played a central role in the development of copyright law and business models for content. Several of those battles, particularly in the digital age, have been resolved in nontraditional and creative ways outside the courtroom. We will look in particular at the resolution of lawsuits involving the digital audio tape (DAT) recorder and YouTube, which included both legal and extralegal solutions. [second half of class]
