Blockbuster lawsuits, artificial intelligence, backroom deals, millions in lobbying dollars and grand Silicon Valley idealism – the story of Google and copyright law is action-packed.
By tracing Google’s legal, commercial and political negotiations over copyright, Google Rules explains how Google became one of the most influential actors in the history of digital copyright. Today, Google reigns over a technological and economic order that features empowered private companies and rapidly changing technological conditions, and how to protect the public interest in this environment is one of the most pressing policy questions of our time. In Google Rules, Joanne E. Gray provides pragmatic strategies for taking up this challenge.
Google Rules is a book that will appeal to anyone interested in understanding Google’s accumulation of power, the recent history of digital copyright, or the future of our digital lives under the influence of an extremely powerful and motivated technology company.
