On March 22, 2011, Federal Judge Denny Chin issued his decision on the Amended Settlement Agreement in the Google Books case. Chin rejected the proposed settlement, as "not fair, adequate and reasonable."
University Librarian Michael Keller issued an initial statement expressing Stanford’s disappointment and noting that "the decision leaves unanswered several important questions, including access to orphan works, periods of protection provided by the Copyright Law, and the yearning for a universal library available to all American citizens."
As stated in the Stanford Report article, Stanford plans to continue its scanning efforts with Google: "We are participating in the project and do not have any current plans to change our position," said Debra Zumwalt, vice president and general counsel for the university.
Keller notes, "We are reading and analyzing the decision. We will be consulting with the other Participating Libraries in the project as well as with Google before we determine next steps."
