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."
