Some of you may not know that NYDAWG began at the New York Archivists Round Table (NYART) Google Books meeting at New York Law School in January 2010. Well, it’s true.
So check out this holiday release of the latest developments in GoogleBooks, Fair Use, patents, and DIY in New York Law School Law Review “D Is for Digital” themed journal.
The Intro is particularly good reading, written by James Grimmelmann who summarizes :

“Google will sell digitized books to individuals and institutions on a grand scale, sharing the revenue with authors and publishers. Millions of copyright owners, tens of millions of books, hundreds of millions of dollars: numerically, it’s a tremendous settlement.”

I think it shows an excellent understanding of how scalability works with small or large institutions.
