IFRRO addresses Commission hearing on Google settlement

Olav Stokkmo, IFRRO CEO, told participants at the European Commission hearing on the Google settlement in Brussels on 7 September, that the Books Rights Registry will operate in a compatible way to RROs and will probably cooperate with the ARROW Digital Library Project.  The hearing was called by DG Internal Market to air European concerns about the Google settlement and addressed consumer, research, education, and access issues as well as the notion of "commercial availability". See full notes and IFRRO intervention.
