Kahle on Google Book Settleemnt
Brewster Kahle, who is the founder and director of the quite amazing Internet Archive, and has somehow managed not to be sued himself as far as I know, has come out explicitly opposing the Google Book Settlement, especially because he believes that it will give Google a monopoly on the exploitation of orphan works. He believes that courts should prevent and not confer monopolies and wants to see legislation instead.
Read this for sure in today's Washington Post.
