Affected Authors Receive Payback for Google Book Settlement

Feb 20, 2009

Authors and publishers affected by Google's Book settlement have begun submitting claims for compensation via a special website. For Principal Works, Entire Inserts, and Partial Inserts that Google digitized on or before May 5, 2009, Google will pay at least $60 per Principal Work, $15 per Entire Insert, and $5 per Partial Insert. Google will also pay the appropriate rightsholders 63% of the revenues earned from those revenue models.
