Zephyr''s long seaweedy hair is wet and dripping down my neck and shoulders. I notice we''re breathing in synch, heavy, bulky breaths. I try to unsynch with him. I try to unsynch with the law of gravity and float up.

How to use Google Books

Can''t do either. Can''t do anything. The wind''s whipping pieces of my drawings--mostly family portraits now--out of Fry''s hands as he tears up one, then another. He rips one of Jude and me down the middle, cuts me right out of it. Then Zephyr says, "Don''t rip ''em up, Fry. His sister says he''s good. They mostly all do now because she can surf harder than any of them, likes to jump off cliffs, and isn''t afraid of anything, not even great white sharks or Dad.

And because of her hair--I use up all my yellows drawing it. It''s hundreds of miles long and everyone in Northern California has to worry about getting tangled up in it, especially little kids and poodles and now asshat surfers. Jude peers up at me from it, sunny, knowing.

Thank you, I tell her in my mind.

She''s always rescuing me, which usually is embarrassing, but not now. That was righteous.

There''s too much of him on his breath. There''s too much of him on me. My stomach rolls.

Devil''s Drop, the second-highest jump on the hill, which they aim to throw me over, has the name for a reason. Beneath it is a jagged gang of rocks and a wicked whirlpool that pulls your dead bones down to the underworld. All six-thousand hippopotamus pounds of Fry dive for my ankles. Sorry, this is not happening. It just isn''t. I hate the water, prone as I am to drowning and drifting to Asia. I need my skull in one piece.

Crushing it would be like taking a wrecking ball to some secret museum before anyone ever got to see what''s inside it. So I grow. And grow, and grow, until I head-butt the sky. Then I count to three and go freaking berserk, thanking Dad in my mind for all the wrestling he''s forced me to do on the deck, to-the-death matches where he could only use one arm and I could use everything and he''d still pin me because he''s thirty feet tall and made of truck parts.

But I''m his son, his gargantuan son. I''m a whirling, ass-kicking Goliath, a typhoon wrapped in skin, and then I''m writhing and thrashing and trying to break free and they''re wrestling me back down, laughing and saying things like "what a crazy mother. High-octane dread courses through me. I call up the bloodiest most hella gross machete massacre--my most effective boner-buster--but it''s too late.

Zephyr goes momentarily still, then jumps off me.

I''ve reeled away, landed in a sitting position, my knees to my chest. I can''t stand up yet for fear of a tent, so I put all my effort in trying not to cry. A sickly ferret feeling is burrowing itself into every corner of my body as I pant my last breaths. And even if they don''t kill me here and now, by tonight everyone on the hill will know what just happened. I might as well swallow a lit stick of dynamite and hurl my own self off Devil''s Drop. This is worse, so much worse, than them seeing some stupid drawings.

But Zephyr''s not saying anything, he''s just standing there, looking like his Viking self, except all weird and mute.

He gestures in the direction of the ocean, says to Fry, "Hell with this. Let''s grab the slabs and head out. Relief swallows me whole. Is it possible he didn''t feel it? However, the librarians have said that the dwindling pace could be a natural result of maturation of the project — initially stacks of books were entirely taken up for scanning whereas now Google only needed to consider the ones that have not been scanned already.

It commented that the decade-long legal battle had caused Google to lose its ambition. Google Through the project, library books were being digitized somewhat indiscriminately regardless of copyright status, which led to a number of lawsuits against Google.

By the end of , Google had reportedly digitized over seven million books, of which only about one million were works in the public domain.

Of the rest, one million were in copyright and in print, and five million were in copyright but out of print. In , a group of authors and publishers brought a major class-action lawsuit against Google for infringement on the copyrighted works. Google argued that it was preserving "orphaned works" — books still under copyright, but whose copyright holders could not be located.

The settlement received significant criticism on a wide variety of grounds, including antitrust, privacy, and inadequacy of the proposed classes of authors and publishers.

The settlement was eventually rejected, [] and the publishers settled with Google soon after. The Authors Guild continued its case, and in their proposed class was certified. Google appealed that decision, with a number of amici asserting the inadequacy of the class , and the Second Circuit rejected the class certification in July , remanding the case to the District Court for consideration of Google's fair use defense. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York.

Google won the case unanimously based on the argument that they were not showing people the full texts but instead snippets, and they are not allowing people to illegally read the book. The case was rejected, leaving the Second Circuit's decision on the case intact, meaning that Google did not violate copyright laws.
