Canada: Writers Union pro Google Settlement

„They’re not selling [the digitized books] yet. I think, down the road, that’s what their intention is,“ Wayne Grady, chair of the Writers‘ Union of Canada, told CBC News. „I mean why wouldn’t it be?“

The union has recommended that authors accept the settlement deal, which if approved by a U.S. court, will apply to writers in more than 200 countries, including Canada. […]

„I think it’s a tremendous opportunity,“ said author Penney Kome, who says the initiative will help give people around the globe better access to books.
