Peter Brantley on Google Book Search
Peter Brantley, co-founder of the Open Book Alliance and director at the Internet Archive, has a piece in the Huffington Post today about the Google Book Search settlement, which has been postponed for now:
The potential damages to consumers extend far beyond the digital book marketplace. Sanctioning monopoly power in online literature would stifle competition in scores of other markets, particularly those dependent on web commerce. The DOJ has raised the alarm, and now it is time for Congress to assume its rightful place in this debate – convening interested voices and arbitrating on behalf of public good.
