Google Announces Settlement with Publishers

Google just announced that they have reached a settlement on a three-year-old class action suit filed by the The Authors Guild, the Association of American Publishers, and other independent authors and publishers. I haven't had a chance to read through all the details, but Google is calling it a "groundbreaking settlement." Jessamyn West (librarian, consultant, metafilter.com moderator, library hero, etc...) has compiled a short list of resources and Dan Cohen (Director, Center for History and New Media) offered up some first impressions. Expect more here on the subject in the near future.
