Friday (anemic) Midday Links: Class is certified in action against Google
My roundup today is anemic in part because the news is slow right now (which is a good thing) but also because I’ve been spending many a late night working on this new fangled thing: http://releases.dearauthor.com/
Judge Denny Chin said in a written ruling that class action is “more efficient and effective than requiring thousands of authors to sue individually.” He added that requiring each author to sue Google would risk disparate results in nearly identical lawsuits and exponentially increase the cost of litigation.”Business Week
Personal Note: This surprises me given that Chin had indicated that the class was over broad in the denial of the settlement. Nonetheless going forward will be a good thing in that the issue regarding fair use will be brought before the court once again. Any clarification on fair use is a good thing.
Personal Note: This is such a ridiculous use of the patent system.
