"In July last the Second Circuit delivered its decision, substantially agreeing with Google and holding Judge Chin's class certification as "premature in the absence of a determination by the District Court [ie Judge Chin] of the merits of Google's 'fair use' defense".

Hence, the Second Circuit decided to remand the cause to the District Court for consideration of the fair use issues.

As reported by Reuters a few minutes ago, today Judge Chin accepted Google's argument that that its scanning of more than 20 million books for an electronic database, and making "snippets" of text available for online searches, constituted fair use. "In my view, Google Books provide significant public benefits", said Judge Chin.

Today's ruling is BIG news for anyone interested in copyright."
