Interesting Fact # 924 - Google payout

Google has paid out 125 million dollars in a copyright dispute with publishers.

(The end of this dispute could see millions of books available for purchase online, but the payout will be split three ways: 30 million to creating a Book Rights Registry, 45 million to paying authors and publishers whose books have already been scanned without permission and the remainder will reimburse legal fees.

So, the winner is - drumroll....

Surprise surprise! The lawyers!)
