In my opinion, Google Books has considerable public benefits. It promotes the advancement of the arts and sciences, while maintaining respect for the rights of authors and other creative people, without infringing on the rights of copyright holders. It has become an invaluable research tool that enables students, teachers, librarians and others to identify and locate books more effectively. It gave scholars the opportunity for the first time to conduct full-text research of tens of millions of books. He keeps books, especially old and exhausted books, forgotten in library incense, and gives them a new life. It facilitates access to books for people with reduced mobility and isolated or underserved. It generates new audiences and creates new sources of revenue for authors and publishers. Indeed, it is the whole of society that benefits.  Authors and publishers began to argue that the Google Library Partner project infringed copyright, despite the restrictions they gave users, because google did not ask them in advance to post scans of their books. In August 2005, Google stated that they would stop digitizing books by November 2005 to allow authors and publishers to choose their books from the program.  For example, if a 318-page book is printed with 32-page signatures, it requires 10 signatures, for a total of 320 pages. At the end of the book, that is, at the end of the last signature, there are 2 unused (empty) pages.
The review deadline for class actions and applications has been set at an accelerated time frame, with objections to be filed by January 28, 2010 and fairness hearings on February 18.  Although the volume of complaints was lower than the original count, they remained critical of the billing conditions. The DOJ also remained critical of the transaction at the fairness hearing, saying that cartel issues and abuse of dominance remained in the transaction, as it allowed Google to circumvent the typical fines for copyright penalties that were not imposed on any other company.   The Open Book Alliance, which had verified the first comparison and developed a framework it had proposed to the parties for comparison 2.0, stated that the new terms of comparison still allowed Google to maintain its monopoly on access and distribution of e-books, among others.   The theme of copyright on orphan works – works that are still copyrighted but have no identifiable copyright – has been an important point of discussion both after this and after HathiTrust.
