Scanning operations had been slowing down since at least , as confirmed by the librarians at several of Google's partner institutions. At University of Wisconsin, the speed had reduced to less than half of what it was in 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.

The case was rejected, leaving the Second Circuit's decision on the case intact, meaning that Google did not violate copyright laws.
Such clarification is important in the new digital age as it affects other scanning projects similar to Google. In a German lawsuit, previously filed, was withdrawn.
This is the first such lawsuit to be filed against Google in China.
