HathiTrust Wins

By [Thursday, October 11th, 2012] at 10:27 am

Judge Baer has granted HathiTrust’s motion for summary judgment. In a 23-page opinion, he ruled in favor of HathiTrust and the print-disabled defendants on every substantive legal issue. The opinion concludes that search indexing and providing access to the print-disabled are both fair uses. An appeal is possible, but for now, the ruling marks a definitive judicial statement in favor of mass digitization.
