By scanning, uploading, transmitting, and allow- ing users to see the books, Google was treading on multiple rights of the legal owners. Yet Google was.

Under Windows PDF95 can produce readable versions at least for the iLiad , see problem opening pdf files from books. I have not tried this, and I would be interested in hearing how well this works on the KDX. Regardless, it seems that using acrobat to "flatten" things fixes whatever the dx has problems with.

However, when I tried to read it on my new site DXG, none of the illustrations could be displayed, and I got a message on the bottom of my DXG screen that said; Some elements on this page could not be displayed. I told them that I just got this new DXG last week with 2. Anyway, hopefully they will take this onboard and update the pdf reader on the DXG in the near future to match the K3's.

After lots of googling and looking at other forums, I found a solution that worked for me. Pretty simple after this, you just open the pdf file and print it.

Select the pdf as your printer and hit ok do not select print to file. It will then go through a conversion process for a minute or two and bring up a typical save-to window to allow you to pick a location and filename use a different filename that the original one if you want to keep it, I did. If such use is considered transformative or is otherwise weighted as tending to be fair, should such a use for a commercial purpose tend to be as fair as a use where the work is altered?

Will it all depend on the circumstances? Judge Chin found that books were used for different purposes than the uses made by the authors. However, he made no finding that the databases, indexes, or snippets which Google created were original in any copyright sense. Using its automated computer tools Google created an index. This was something new, but there was no finding that this was a new work or a new transformed work in which copyright might subsist.

Rather, it would appear that the index was an inevitable outcome of the content of the books as scanned by the automated tools.

Reading A-Z is a one-stop destination for teachers for all their reading needs.

If these elements are required for a transformative use, then the analysis of the Google Book project under the first factor could have been given a different weighting. Further, if a transformative use without alteration of the work should be weighed differently from where the work is altered, as in Campbell, then again the weighting under the first factor might have been different. His reasons almost write this explicit statutory consideration out of the statute.

Universal City Studios, Inc. In arguing that the purpose of news reporting is not purely commercial, The Nation misses the point entirely. In Campbell the Court acknowledged that if a commercial factor had the force of a presumption of unfairness, that could render ineligible for fair use certain uses which Congress had clearly contemplated could be fair uses such as the specific illustrations in the statute. It therefore did away with the presumption. Indirect commercial benefits are generally assessed in the same manner as direct benefits and one might have thought these benefits would have weighed against a finding of fairness.

In doing so, the court effectively turned what had been a presumption of unfairness into a presumption of fairness. Judge Chin did not expressly weigh these commercial dealings in his assessment of the first factor. Given that the scanned copies made available to libraries were not transformed in any way, should this use have been weighed heavily against Google?

These were referred to in the brief filed by The Authors Guild, but not mentioned in the opinion. The fourth factor focuses on the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.

Fair use, when properly applied, is limited to copying by others which does not materially impair the marketability of the work which is copied. After Campbell, it remains an important factor in assessing whether the allegedly offending uses are fair.

First, the authors did not show that the Google books project would negatively impact the market for books. Second, the project will enhance the sales of books to the benefit of authors. His analysis never condescended to examining specific aspects of the project or infringements with respect to specific works or even classes of works.

His analysis essentially excuses all possible infringements by relying on the overall social benefits of the project. However, in other cases, judges have refused to allow one use that that meets the requirements of a fair use to excuse other infringing conduct that does not.

The Google Book project consisted of two conceptually different activities. Judge Chin assessed each of these activities together. As pointed out above, however, the purpose and character of the first aspect of the project might weigh heavily against Google because merely digitizing copies of books to give them to libraries is not transformative and there are a long line of cases that have refused to permit the copier to rely on the purposes of users to make out the fair use defense.

The assessment of the fairness of the use was also done without assessing the impacts on each work, even though separate copyrights exist in each work. It is possible that uses for some works may be fair, but uses for others may not be. Judge Chin justified the overall fairness of the uses by adverting to specific types of books such as those that are out of print or falling apart. He also noted that the books spanned the universe of types including fiction and non-fiction. His assessment of fairness was based on both general advantages that could be gained through the service, as well as specific advantages that would apply to some books, but not others.

Had he done an analysis by focusing on the fairness in relation to each of the particular infringements would he have arrived at the same result? Was he required to engage in a work by work analysis given that each work had a separate copyright? Could the fairness associated with scanning an out of print work justify scanning a new book still in print and being actively sold?

Judge Chin had at least two theoretical ways of approaching the fairness assessment. Many test cases go forward with several typical examples of uses that judges specifically analyse. The recent case, Cambridge University Press v. Becker, which addressed the fair use status of e-reserves is a good example. In fact, his fair use assessment did not even consider the specific fair use factors associated with the three books of the representative plaintiffs in the case. The Google Books case raises critical questions about how the fair use doctrine is to be applied when technological change makes it possible to make new uses of works published in traditional formats.

If new uses of works are considered transformative without any requirement for the works to be adapted will this open up a floodgates of new business models where copyrights are used as the primary input without which the service cannot be provided but where the authors and owners receive none of the benefits from these new uses?

In Eldred, the U. Supreme Court explained that the economic philosophy behind the Copyright Clause is that rewarding authors for their creative labor and promoting progress redound to the public benefit by resulting in the proliferation of knowledge.

Fair use was traditionally defined as a privilege to use copyrighted material in a reasonable manner without consent. It elevates fair use, an exception to infringement that provides no rewards or incentives to authors, over exclusive rights which do. After considering all of the listed fair use factors, Judge Chin did an overall assessment of the fairness of the project and concluded that it was a fair use.

His reasons included a finding that Google Books provides significant public benefits. It advances the progress of the arts and sciences, while maintaining respectful consideration for the rights of authors and other creative individuals, and without adversely impacting the rights of copyright holders.

If Google is entitled to rely on a fair use defence in this case, will the transformative nature of digital technologies inevitably incent other technology companies to develop new business models that use copyright as a main input for profitable businesses, without consent and payment?

The test has three conditions, each of which must be met for an exception to be permissible.

This condition imposes at least two requirements. The first is a predictability obligation that requires that the exception be clearly defined, known and particularized.

It must provide a sufficient degree of legal certainty. The second requirement is that an exception must be finite and limited in scope and application. The exception must be narrow in scope and reach and be specifically focused. It must be the opposite of non-special, i.

Some experts argue the exception must also serve some specific and sound public policy objective, for example, public education, public security, freedom of expression, the needs of disabled persons, or the like. It extends to all forms of exploiting a work which have, or are likely to acquire, considerable economic or practical importance.

The exception must not undermine the market for the work; undermine the ways that right holders normally extract economic value from the right; or deprive rights holders of significant or tangible commercial gains. Commercial for profit enterprises like Google can stand in the shoes of their customers making non-profit or non-commercial uses to claim the benefit of their transformative non-commercial activities.

In assessing the purpose and character of the use, no alteration of the work is required to make the use transformative. Further, once there is a finding of transformation without alteration, the commercial for profit motives of the service provider can be virtually overlooked. In assessing the fairness of uses of works, the fairness of a particular dealing with a particular work acts to immunise from scrutiny other potential infringements including infringements of copyrights in other works. Authors and rights holders not only potentially lose control over how their works and other subject matter are used in the digital environment where there is a use for a different purpose than the purpose of the author or rights holder and no actual market harm is shown, but also have no right to receive even reasonable compensation for the uses.

The breadth of the potential commercial uses and loss of control by rights holders also squarely raises the question as to whether there is unreasonable prejudice to the legitimate interests of authors and other rights holders. The legitimacy question is compounded by the approach Google took to going about the project.

They were highlighted by Judge Chin. Google Books is a service that uses works for novel purposes that overall increases their dissemination.

The question is not whether projects like Google Books that have social benefits should be encouraged. It is whether authors that invested years of front-end efforts in creating copyright works and to whom the Copyright Clause seeks to incent to continue to make such investments, should have the right to authorize these new uses.

Baltimore Ravens Ltd , F. However, as we recognized in Texaco, 60 F. To the extent that the secondary use involves merely an untransformed duplication, the value generated by the secondary use is little or nothing more than the value that inheres in the original.

Rather than making some contribution of new intellectual value and thereby fostering the advancement of the arts and sciences, an untransformed copy is likely to be used simply for the same intrinsic purpose as the original, thereby providing limited justification for a finding of fair use. Meltwater U. Holdings, Inc S.

Infinity Broadcast Corp. Panorama Records, Inc. It claimed its purpose was fair because its users used the devices to learn song lyrics. News Serv.

Tullo, F. See Los Angeles News Service v. Michigan Document , 99 F. The copyshop argued that its use was fair, inter alia, by claiming that the uses were transformative and that it could stand in the shoes of its customers whose uses were non-commercial and likely a fair use.

The court rejected the contention that the verbatim copying, even when juxtaposed with excerpts from other books could be transformative.

It also rejected the claim that the copyshop could claim its use was non-commercial merely because its customers use was non-commercial, relying on the text written by William Patry, Fair Use in Copyright Law: It is true that the use to which the materials are put by the students who download the coursepacks is noncommercial in nature.

But the use of the materials by the students is not the use that the publishers are challenging. What the publishers are challenging is the duplication of copyrighted materials for sale by a for-profit corporation that has decided to maximize its profits — and give itself a competitive edge over other copyshops—by declining to pay the royalties requested by the holders of the copyrights.

We need not decide this question, however, for the fact is that the copying complained of here was performed on a profit-making basis by a commercial enterprise. Code Cong. News , Tullo , F. LANS videotaped the sites of an airplane crash and a train wreck and licensed certain Los Angeles-area television stations to use them on news programs. The fact that [the defendant] focuses on the giving rather than the taking cannot hide the fact that profit is its primary motive for making the exchange.

Reuters Television Intern. The court found that the transmission of unedited copies not to be transformative.

Reuters copies footage and transmits it to news reporting organizations; Reuters does not explain the footage, edit the content of the footage, or include editorial comment. Acuff-Rose Music, Inc. Reuters used the works for a commercial purpose, providing the works to other news reporting organizations in exchange for an annual fee. LANS normally charges customers for the privilege of copying portions of its works. The district court did not err in finding that this factor weighed in favor of LANS.

Y, March 21, Meltwater, an electronic news clipping service provider contended that the purpose of its use was fair, inter alia, because its business relates to news reporting and research.
