This is one section of a paper I am currently working on about the rhetoric surrounding the Google Book Search controversy. In this paper, I'll be focusing on two forums of this debate: the general public and higher education. Here I am comparing a section of the Google Book Search Settlement to a popularized version. I'll be translating this paper into a web resource that I hope to share with HASTAC soon. So here's your chance to weigh in: how do you think Google Books, in particular the "fight" surrounding the technology, matters to students and teachers in higher education? What would you like to see in a website that offers a rhetorical perspective on this "fight"?
