The only reason to care about the publishers' lawsuit against Google Print is the pure epic drama that's going to unfold.
If plainitively dumb wailing can win the PR battle that is the lawsuit over Google Print, then the AAP (the publisher's lobby) has made a great choice in picking former Colorado congresswoman Pat Schroeder as their leader.
I say to Google, ‘Let’s make a deal. You won’t make quite as much money, but I think you’ll do okay. Let’s share, boys, come on, let’s share! You don’t have to be so greedy!’
I'm serious. Schroeder may be supremely dumb, but she's the kind of dumb that wins sympathy.
It's truly a David vs Goliath story, when it comes to brains (hint: Google playing the Goliath part, in this case). Of course, we all know how that turned out.
