Dear Dev and All,


The Association of American Publishers and Google entered into a settlement,
see: http://www.publishers.org/press/85/ I thought that this would be of
interest to the .book debate


Kind Regards,

Dear Dev,

thank you very much for your email explaining the course of action which
you recommend.
I am CC'ing the present email to the ALAC for its information.
I also trust that Avri Doria, Chair of the At-Large New gTLD Working
Group, will be picking up the ball from here. I look forward to her WG
making recommendations as to the course of action they suggest.

Best regards,

Olivier MJ Crépin-Leblond
ALAC Chair
