(i) Fixed Preview Books. For Books in categories listed on Attachment F (Preview Uses) as Fixed Preview, Google may conduct tests in consultation with the Registry to determine if another Preview Use category increases sales and revenues of such Books. For purposes of such tests, Google may randomly select no more than five percent (5%) of the Books within a category in Attachment F (Preview Uses) for which only Fixed Preview is permitted and display those Books through Standard Preview, Continuous Preview or No Preview for a limited time only as necessary to gather statistically significant information as to which Preview Uses increases sales and revenues of such Book. Google shall present the results of these tests to the Registry. The Registry, in consultation with Google, shall be responsible for determining whether to modify Attachment F (Preview Uses) to move Books from Fixed Preview to Standard Preview, Continuous Preview or No Preview taking into account the data provided by such tests and other data available to the Registry that is relevant to such Preview Use determination. The Registry shall make this decision taking into account whether the data indicate that sales and revenues of a particular category of Books that are currently included in Consumer Purchase will be increased by moving from Fixed Preview to Standard Preview, Continuous Preview or No Preview and, considering such data, acting in the best interests of the Rightsholders of that category of Books to maximize revenues for those Rightsholders
