Google Library Project's transforms the text into a comprehensive word index to facilitate searching and data mining in new areas. The use does not supersede or replace reading of books; it adds something new to the original work by using words to facilitate searching. It aim to make it easier for people to find relevant books specifically, books they wouldn't find any other way such as those that are out of print. At the same time will carefully respecting authors' and publishers' copyrights. The goal is to create a comprehensive, searchable, virtual card catalog of all books in all languages that helps users discover new books and publishers discover new readers. Users simply search for a book or topic using keywords and Google lists books from its database containing the search terms. Users can then click a book title to view “snippets” of books containing the term(s) searched.
We are going to talk about Google Library Project and a history for their straggle in court. We are also going to talk about is it good or bad that Google is a United State corporation bound by U.S. laws., what is the “fair use” doctrine and if we think that Google defines it correctly in this controversy. We are also going to explain why some libraries are backers of the project, while others vehemently oppose it.

The Conquest and Settlement of Canaan

...THE CONQUEST AND SETTLEMENT OF CANAAN The Conquest and Settlement of Canaan Jimmy West Grand Canyon University Old Testament History July 21, 2009 Introduction The Book of Judges takes its title from the twelve men and one woman who served as judges during the period from Joshua’s death to the time of Samuel.This book was written during the period of the monarchy, judging by the phrase which occurs four times, “In those days there was no king in Israel.” All the judges were themselves limited in their capabilities. In fact, each one seemed to have some defect and handicap which was not a hindrance but became a positive asset under the sovereign direction of God. In Judges we find backsliding and the amazing grace of God in recovering and restoring . The New Scofield Reference Bible gives the theme of the Book of Judges as “Defeat and Deliverance.” This is unusually appropriate. There is, however, another aspect which this book emphasizes: disappointment. The Role of the Judges in Israel How gracious and compassionate the Lord is! When the children of Israel cried unto Him for deliverance, He raised up Othniel to be the first judge. Othniel was the first and one of the better judges. There is no great criticism leveled against him. He saved his people from the oppression of Chushan–rishathaim. The only thing is that he was not capable in himself. He did not become leader of Israel because of his outstanding ability but......

...about the lawsuit filed yesterday against Google by the Author's Guild, for digitizing copyrighted books from libraries and making them searchable online. (Although the books are searchable, no more than a handful of sentence-sized snippets can be read online, unless the book is in the public domain or the publishers give permission for more to be viewable.) Once again, the issue boils down to fair use in a new application that could greatly benefit the public and bring new revenues and other benefits to copyright holders. While this particular issue has not yet been decided in court, and various legal scholars have taken both sides of the issue, Google has what looks like a good case for fair use both for the service itself and for the digitization necessary to provide it. In the actual service, the snippets provided to readers are very small, cannot reasonably substitute for access to the entire work, and will probably have a net-positive effect for the market for the work. The digitization, not unlike the complete home taping of a TV show, is not distributed, and is the minimum necessary to support the ultimate use-- in this case, full-text searching to identify books one may wish to track down and read. Even when full text is not available online to the public, as it is in the books listed here at The Online Books Page, simply providing the ability to search a vast library of materials can do a lot to help people find books that would be useful to them, and then......

...Introduction : Google was founded in 1995 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin and it was the first popular search engine in the world. They created this search engine so that users can find any website or document on the web based on keyword or exact searches. Google provides free services for their users. Other than the search engine, they can also search books on Google Book Search, news on Google News, videos on Google Video (YouTube) and maps on Google Maps Google has changed the way people look at and share information. This has made them a leading search engine on the web and a global technology leader. Back in the mid 90’s Brin and Page, Stanford University graduates, worked on developing this unique technology. Since then, Google has grown to become one of the most recognized brands in the world as well as one of the top Internet destinations. As of 2013, Google has 16800 employees working in more than 70 offices in more than 40 countries around the globe. Their headquarters is located in Mountain View, California, USA.

...1) In 2013 Google was the leading Internet search firm. Google owned 67 percent market share in search from home and work computers and a 97 percent share of searches performed by mobile devices. The two main competitors for Google in the search engine industry for market share is Microsoft Corporation’s Bing and Yahoo Inc.’s search. (Blystone, 2015). Google is well known and a leader in the search engine industry that the company became a verb. When people search for something on the Internet such as for a recipe they say, “ I goggled the recipe” (Blystone, 2015). The competition in the search engine industry for Google does come from the two related search engines yahoo search and Bing. However, the major competition in the search engine industry stems from searches with in websites and apps that offer more than just searches, such as Amazon, Inc. and Facebook, Inc. For example, Facebook Inc.’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg articulated that the company’s assets could be used to compete with search engines. Facebook Inc. can compete with search engines by the website uniquely being positioned to answer questions people may have such as, what sushi restaurants my friends have been to recently and liked? These query-based searches that can be done on Facebook potentially offer consumer something they could not do anywhere else (Blystone, 2015). Apple Inc. also created feature and operating system on their iPhone, iWatches, and Apple TV Siri that acts as a virtual personal assistant.......

...Google Inc. is an American multinational technology company specializing in Internet-related services and products. These include online advertising technologies, search, cloud computing, and software.[7] Most of its profits are derived from AdWords,[8][9] an online advertising service that places advertising near the list of search results. Google was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were Ph.D. students at Stanford University. Together they own about 14 percent of its shares but control 56 percent of the stockholder voting power through supervoting stock. They incorporated Google as a privately held company on September 4, 1998. An initial public offering followed on August 19, 2004. Its mission statement from the outset was "to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful,"[10] and its unofficial slogan was "Don't be evil".[11][12] In 2004, Google moved to its new headquarters in Mountain View, California, nicknamed the Googleplex.[13] In August 2015, Google announced plans to reorganize its interests as a holding company called Alphabet Inc. When this restructuring took place on October 2, 2015, Google became Alphabet's leading subsidiary, as well as the parent for Google's Internet interests.[14][15][16][17][18] Rapid growth since incorporation has triggered a chain of products, acquisitions and partnerships beyond Google's core search engine.

Squatter Settlements

...Taylor Canseco PLN 371 Rajinder S. Jutla Term Paper Squatter Settlements: The Worlds Largest Unknown Population In talking to many of my peers around the Missouri State campus, I wanted to know what people thought were some of the worlds largest populations. While gathering several answers, the questions asked were never necessarily specific. Answers ranged from religious populations, ethnic populations, and country populations. The reason for the questionnaire was so that people could be informed about one of the worlds largest populations; the residents of squatter settlements all around the world. With the world population nearly reaching 7 billion, almost 1/6th of these people have found a way to live in illegally built cities. While some of these cities have found ways to create peace and fluency, such as the Favelas of Brazil, many have planning issues that planners hope to one day solve. Although they are not the typical modern day cities, squatter settlements have formed some of the most fluent new urban ways of life around the world. Louis Wirth, author of one of planning’s earliest journal articles “Urbanism as a Way of Life” (actually a sociology journal), stated that there were three basic principles when it came to defining urbanism. Population size, density, and the heterogeneity of an area is how new urbanism is built. In this paper we will use these three principles, rational thinking, and the basic planning process to view how over 1 billion squatters...

The Google Books Settlement

...MGT 640 Unit 3 – Case Analysis The Google Books Settlement Rhonda Y. Smith-Gullette California Intercontinental University (CalU) MGT 640 Jan 24, 2016 Dr. Ebenezer A. Robinson Abstract This week’s case titled The Google Books Settlement will be the subject of this case analysis. This case analysis will discuss Google US Corporation: good or bad, fair use doctrine, and Libraries that back project the Google Books Project. This case analysis will conclude with a recommendation and a conclusion that will recap the major points of this analysis. Overview People do not read as much anymore. There are other options. YouTube streams videos on every topic imaginable. “Steve Jobs noted people don’t read anymore” (Laudon & Traver, 2012). “Forty percent of the people in the U.S. read one book or less last year” (Laudon & Traver, 2012). This is due to the numerous options of acquiring data and information. People are still being educated so what is being used in lieu of books? “e-book sales exploded in 2010, growing from 0.6% of book sales in the United States in 2009 to 6.4%” (Laudon & Traver, 2012). In 2002 Google began a digital library. The same way Pandora and The Pirate Bay benefited from advertising, Google did also. Problems arose when Google sought go put information on their servers that did not belong to them which brings up copyrighted issues. No royalties or fees were paid and this started Googles problems. Lawsuits were filed. ......

Settlement Geography

...Jon-Carlo Steele Pennett Due: 17th April 2012 Settlement Geography A settlement is a grouping of people; activities; building structures and communication networks that function together on a daily basis as a single integrated system. This essay will look at how three settlements, Cape Town; Grabouw and Stanford compare with each other. Cape Town; Grabouw and Stanford are located within the Western Cape Province of South Africa. Cape Town is a very built up area and is a major Metropolitan. Cape Town is also a break of bulk settlement and can be seen as a specialized city that is multi-functional because it serves many functions. Grabouw and Stanford are not as built up as Cape Town. They have fewer high order good and services. This places them both lower on the hierarchy of urban settlements. They can be seen as minor country towns that supply goods and services to the surrounding rural population, so they are also seen as central places. Due to Cape Town being so well built up compared to Grabouw and Stanford, It has a lot more land-use-zones that can be clearly identified. Cape Town has a large CBD with many tall, high rise buildings; situated on a grid iron street pattern; accessible but contains a lot of traffic during peak hour. Cape Towns upper residential zone has large 2-3 story houses that are situated on a planned irregular street pattern that is fairly close to the CBD, such as Higgovale. Cape town’s transition zone is situated around the oldest parts...

After some brainstorming, they go with Google—a play on the word “googol,” a mathematical term for the number represented by the numeral 1 followed by 100 zeros.
