Google Wages Fresh Campaign Against Critics of Project to Digitize Library Books, from the Chronicle

…an announcement this month by Google that it was starting a campaign to dispel misperceptions about the project. …Google officials said they were creating a “fact-checking brigade” about the company’s digitization effort.

I know it’s verging on politically incorrect to say this these days, but I’m entirely on Google’s side on this issue. Why? Because fair use seems to be rapidly disappearing, and Google is, while not the only, certainly one of the loudest voices out there fighting for it.
