Straight Angle™: A big bet that is!
Friday, October 21, 2005
Of late, Google had been in a variety of law suits and it is wriggling its way out by variety of means- compromise[Repetition of the earlier link], defiance, compliance and back tracking. But, what they eventually are doing in this case of Google Print, is not being unnoticed.
And that is the case of surprise/worry/astonishment for many across the world. Though there are many voices for and against the venture, it seems that there is more at stake than mere publisher's gaurding their rights.[Atleast thats what John claims]..Just have a look at the AAUP's Peter Gilver's open letter to Google's MacGillivray about the AAUP's concerns and issues that face the project!..To me, the AAUP seems to be overly concerned about the unprecedentedness of the venture...that is what is repeated great many times in the letter!
There is also a parallel issue being brought to light by this post! The post rightly points out that, Google is increasing it's stake in the issue by comparing the web search with Library's book search. There is a valid question- What if Google looses this case, on which it has staked it's entire business essence? A terrifying proposition indeed!...Will have to wait and watch!
It seems that, both Yahoo! and Google have posted encouraging results this quarter! [It seems almost all IT companies are reporting better results!:O]
BTW, the latest kid on the block had just been launched! I tried it and I reserve the detailed comment on it for future!
