Thank you, Google. I appreciate a company that understands that copyright is not an end in and of itself; rather, copyright is simply a tool to some other purpose.You've put copyright in a great historical context.
This is hilarious! At first, I thought it had to be an April Fools post, but no Google was actually "celebrating copyright" with no hint of shame.Does anyone else see the irony of Google trying to reposition itself as honoring copyright, when Google is arguably the biggest copyright scofflaw in history? Wire services, authors, songwriters, publishers, photographers, studios, programmers, and others have all sued Google for copyright infringement! The Viacom case court papers show a Google that purposefully chose to disrepect copyright as a business strategy. The Google Book Settlement has prompted DOJ and Register of Copyrights opposition for its disrepect of copyrights, among other problems. To review the litany of evidence of Google's profound disrespect of copyright, please see the intellectual property section of www.googlemonitor.com.
