New class action against Google for infringement of book copyrights

Authors Guild Sues Google, Citing ‘Massive Copyright Infringement’

The Authors Guild and [three individual authors] filed a class action suit today … against Google over its unauthorized scanning and copying of books through its Google Library program…..

Through its Library program, Google is reproducing works still under the protection of copyright….

“This is a plain and brazen violation of copyright law,” said Authors Guild president Nick Taylor. “It’s not up to Google or anyone other than the authors, the rightful owners of these copyrights, to decide whether and how their works will be copied.”

"Don't believe anything just because you read it on the Internet. Anyone can say anything on the Internet, and they do. The Internet is the most effective medium in history for the rapid global propagation of rumor, myth, and false information." (From The Practical Nomad Guide to the Online Travel Marketplace, 2001)
