Aaron Swartz writes on Google Weblog, which is not Google’s official blog, that “Google’s reported policy of not speaking to News.com reporters continues to make them look silly.” Just as it does any other company that says “no comment” in the age of the Internet.
The official Google blog defends Google against the Author’s Guild lawsuit to stop Google Print. You can bet that when rising behemoth Google wants to get a message out, they have instant access to many millions of people worldwide — enough to move markets and change opinions.
“Google respects copyright.” says the Google blog. “The use we make of all the books we scan through the Library Project is fully consistent with both the fair use doctrine under U.S. copyright law and the principles underlying copyright law itself, which allow everything from parodies to excerpts in book reviews.”
