Resource for Google Book Search Settlement info

Professor James Grimmelmann and his students at the New York Law School have created an informative website called The Public Index to study and discuss the proposed Google Book Search settlement. The website is a great resource for anyone seeking more information. It includes a document library, forums, and reports. Recently the group released a report that summarizes the latest objections and responses to the settlement.

The fairness hearing for the settlement was held in February but Judge Denny Chin has yet to rule. According to Publishers Weekly, it is not clear if he will rule due to a recent promotion. If another judge takes over the case, it will be the third judge since 2008.
