Hachette Book Group v. Internet Archive: Is There a Better Way to Restore Balance in Copyright?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Using the opening of the National Emergency Library as an opportunity, four large publishers, Hachette Book Group, HarperCollins Publishers, John Wiley & Sons, and Penguin Random House, filed suit against the Internet Archive claiming copyright infringement. This article discusses the lawsuit and the claims on both sides before discussing the weaknesses for the parties, and recommending that negotiation would be the best way to move forward.
