Scott Gant takes on Google

I’ve voiced my opinion a few times about this settlement, Is Copyright Under Threat and More Google Rants so I am glad that someone has redressed the issue and by a lawyer, author, and partner at the law firm Boies, Schiller, & Flexner, Scott E. Gant adding a further twist in the tale of the Google Book Settlement.

He is voicing an objection to the settlement urging the court to reject it stating that Google and its partners are trying to ‘ram this settlement through so that millions of copyright holders will have no idea that this is happening’.

The court has set a deadline for briefs of the settlement on the 4th September and a scheduled hearing for early October. Hopefully sense will prevail and Gant’s objection is upheld.
