Dan Clancy withdraws?

Rumor has it that Dan Clancy has withdrawn from speaking at the Frankfurt Book Fair next week.

See “More Questions Than Answers on Google Books“: “Google’s Dan Clancy had patiently answered question after question regarding Google’s’ Book Search settlement with publishers and authors until late in the afternoon Friday, when he was finally left speechless [when a reporter] asked Clancy what kind of message was sent when Google decided to ‘copy first and answer questions later.'”

A fascinating article.
