One response to “S”

  1. I like Matthew Sag’s comment on this section, in one of his presentations on YouTube: “This of course makes no sense. These twin objectives, maximising revenue and maximising public access, can only be consistent up to to a point. At the end of the day, Google and the Registry have to choose one or the other as their primary objective.”

(i) Objectives. The economic terms for Institutional Subscriptions of Books will be governed by two objectives: (1) the realization of revenue at market rates for each Book and license on behalf of Rightsholders and (2) the realization of broad access to the Books by the public, including institutions of higher education. Plaintiffs and Google view these two objectives as compatible, and agree that these objectives will help assure both long-term revenue to the Rightsholders and accessibility of the Books to the public.
