Pages 9-10: Although Google won the Google Books cases at both trial and on appeal, as of 2020, they virtually dropped the scanning project. As Tim Wu noted in the New Yorker Sept 12, 2015 “Today, the project sits in a kind of limbo. On one hand, Google has scanned an impressive thirty million volumes, putting it in a league with the world’s larger libraries (the library of Congress has around thirty-seven million books). That is a serious accomplishment. But while the corpus is impressive, most of it remains inaccessible.

The situation is now stalled.
