Search and Rescue

Tim O’Reilly has an op-ed in today’s New York Times regarding the Authors Guild suit against the Google Library Project. Perfect summary of why the Authors Guild, and any authors who supports their suit, are wrong.

Update: I’ve changed the link to point to O’Reilly’s hosted version of essay, which contains a bit of extra commentary and an extra paragraph that was cut because of space constraints. Sort of like a director’s cut for op-eds.
