Quote, unquote: Every silver lining has a cloud; or is it the othe way around?

"The apparent failure of the Google Books settlement, at least in its broadest form, has given more power to copyright owners of previously published books, "inserts," and periodicals, and to Google's rivals in digital publishing.  Now may be a good time for publishers to negotiate with digital distributors (such as Google, Internet Archive, Amazon, Microsoft, Lexis-Nexis and others) as to digital distribution rights to your publishing archives."
-- from a bulletin put out by American Business Media concerning the district court decision rejecting the Google Books settlement.
