    A Perfect 10 Storm for Google

    Stephen Dang, Samuelson Law, Technology, and Public Policy Clinic, February 27, 2006

    Abstract: Storm clouds gather as a court found Google’s image search, which generates thumbnail-sized image reproductions from websites, to infringe Perfect 10’s copyrighted photos. The holding potentially weakens Google’s ongoing litigation over its Book Search Program, where the Association of American Publishers (AAP) claims Program search results providing short “snippets” of copyrighted books infringes the copyright holder’s rights. Google raises a fair use defense, arguing that the snippets are transformative and do not harm the copyright holder’s commercial interests.

    Richard Robinson - Scientology Service Completions | Truth About Scientology Statistics Project

    Common name error or ?


    I'm prolly being tinfoil-hatty, but Andrew S. Hedden - Partner, Baker & McKenzie LLP is also on the Board of the company and they used to be $cilon lawyers til they dropped them.

    My reason for asking is I saw this thing on the national news tonight:

    The 39 Clues

    Books connected to video games in order to get the kids to read. May well be the neatest idea since sliced bread, and may be in competition with "Applied Scholastics," but I thought I ought to at least bring it up. I don't find any service completions matching the remainder of the board, and the websites look too slick to be Co$, but better safe than sorry because the idea has clout / staying power.

    edit: His resume reads too smart to be a $cilon, but then again he was born into the family business and $'s.
