Appeals Court Validates Google's Mammoth Books Project


Google won an important legal victory on Friday, when the Second United States Court of Appeals in New York upheld a lower court’s judgment in its years-long battle with the Authors Guild over Google Books. The case “tests the boundaries of fair use,” Judge Pierre Leval wrote in the appeals court’s ruling. Google’s unauthorized digitizing of copyright-protected works, creation of search functionality, and displaying of snippets from those works do not constitute infringement, according to the decision.

Legislation Aims to Bring Product Warranties Into the Internet Age


The process of “checking the fine print” always has been an important aspect of consumer behavior. For product manufacturers, providing important transaction information to consumers also has been a challenging part of business operations.
Take the fine print of warranty information, for example. In the world of e-commerce, how should sellers and buyers approach the issue of an appropriate way to transmit warranty information vital to concluding a sale? The U.S. Senate has addressed that issue by passing S. 1359, the E-Warranty Act of 2015.

Will PayPal Become the Next BlackBerry?


Recently I had a problem with a purchase, which led me to ask an important question: Will PayPal become the next BlackBerry or Nokia? PayPal must update, or it will lose to new competitors like Apple Pay, Google Wallet, CurrentC and Square, whose intention is to reinvent the e-commerce and mobile payment space. PayPal was a great service when the Internet was young and consumers had no other choice. It gave us a way to do business with lots of small companies anywhere in the U.S., or in fact the world.

General Electric made some important news last week, when it announced it was leaving the finance industry. It attributed its decision to recent changes that it characterized as less cyclical and more transformational. At the same time, GE is focused on newer ideas like its “Industrial Internet.” If it executes this the right way, it could be a blueprint for growth going forward. The Industrial Internet is an important growth engine opportunity, but most people don’t have a clue what it really is.

When Internet Speed Kills Reliability


What’s more important when it comes to an Internet connection — quality and reliability, or speed? This is a question I’m pondering as I sip a latte at Starbucks. I have come to the conclusion that while speed is sexy and sells, quality and reliability are more important. See if you agree. Like countless others, I spend an hour or two every day working in Starbucks — just me, my latte and my laptop. I have been doing this for enough years that I have become one of the mayors of the neighborhood coffee klatch.
