Randy Picker’s Slides on the Google Book Search Settlement’s Antitrust Angle

Randy gave a great 20-minute talk on the antitrust implications of the Google Book Search settlement at the Columbia conference on Friday. His tripartite division of the issues into those involving files, licenses, and the Registry was analytically quite helpful, and I agreed with his conclusions. Inside baseball—and perhaps not fully useful until the video of the talk is also available—but essential reading for settlement-watchers.
