and

D IS FOR DIGITIZE

A Conference on the Google Book Search Lawsuit
New York Law School
Thursday, October 8 through Saturday, October 10, 2009

Everything about the Google Book Search project is larger than life, from Google’s audacious plan to digitize every book ever published to the gigantic class action settlement now awaiting court approval. D
IS FOR Digitize will give this complex lawsuit the sustained attention it deserves. An interdisciplinary lineup of academics and practitioners will examine the settlement through the lenses of copyright, civil procedure, antitrust, the publishing industry, information policy, and literary culture. The conference is timed to
coincide with the rescheduled fairness hearing in the Google Book Search case, which will be held on Wednesday, October 7 in New York City, just five blocks from the Law School.
