Supreme Court rejects challenge to Google book-scanning project

On April 18, 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear a copyright infringement case against Google for its 12-year-old effort to scan books and allow people to search them, because the massive Google books program falls under so-called fair use exemptions to copyright protections. Fair use allows limited reuse of copyright-protected works for criticism, parodies, education, and other purposes. Fair use also allows for people to transform the original content into a new type of work, and that transformation of the printed books was part of Google's argument in this case. For Google, Wikipedia, my own site, and many other educational and archival sites, this is tremendous news.
