Google/AP Deal Will Spawn New Product
Jason Lee Miller | Staff Writer

For many publishers and news providers, being included in the Google
News index is a good thing. It’s a traffic driver. For the Associated
Press, it’s another matter because AP content is syndicated in
publications worldwide. Google has agreed to a licensing agreement

The future, says AP Business writer Michael Liedtke, is "in the
coming months." Google has been at the center of several riffs over
the limitations of Fair Use, the guiding principles on use of content
snippets and thumbnail images. Google has maintained that indexing
and directing consumers to content is covered under those principles.

The Agence France Presse, Perfect 10 Magazine, and numerous
publishers have disagreed. Google has been able to sidestep a few of
these concerns in court, but is still facing legal action from the

entanglements.

Google and the AP disclosed yesterday that the search company would
provide compensation for articles and photographs. But according
to company spokespersons, the arrangement is not necessarily meant
for Google News in its current incarnation.

“The license in this agreement provides for new uses of original AP
content for features and products we will introduce in the future,”
said Google spokesperson Sonya Boralv in a statement. “We are very
excited about the innovative new products we will build with full
access to this content.”

UC Libraries May Join Google Project

among an international collection of others.

Aside from Google’s (and often the court’s) belief that indexing
content is acceptable, the company has been brokering deals with
publishers for other services, like AdSense and the Google Print for
Publishers project.

“Google has always believed that content providers and publishers
should be fairly compensated for their work so they can continue
producing high quality information,” continued Boralv. “We are
always working on new ways to help users find the information they
are looking for, and our business agreement with the Associated Press
is one example of that.”

Google would not elaborate on the financial details on the
arrangement, nor would the company comment as to whether there are
other syndication deals on the horizon.

“,1] ); //–>apparently has a vision of universal access to scholarly works that
parallels Google’s. The Los Angeles Times cited as favoring the Google
Books Library Project as a way to make their libraries available to
all.

Greenstein said Google would “create access like we’ve never had
before to our cultural heritage and scholarly memory. It’s a whole
new paradigm.” Six other library systems, including five universities
and the New York Public Library, have already signed on with Google’s
ambitious scanning project.

Protection of knowledge from loss and destruction would be one benefit
of digitizing books and storing them electronically. Greenstein noted
how much could be lost in the aftermath of another hurricane like
Katrina; California is vulnerable to earthquakes, and fires resulting
from a major quake could remove thousands of pages from the world
forever.

Google sees its book scanning as an extension of what it does online.
Lawsuits against Google claim this is copyright violation on a massive
scale. Those suits brought by the Author’s Guild and the American
Association of Publishers are still in process; the plaintiffs do not
want books scanned at all unless Google specifically asks for
permission to do so.

The UC system would not be paid by Google, according to the Times.
Instead it would benefit from the cost savings associated with sending
students to electronic versions of books and journals instead of having
to buy more printed copies.

UC would still have to front $1 million to $5 million to pay for
electronic storage, and about $700,000 per year in ongoing costs
during the book scanning phase of the project.
