All the books that fit--Google Print
The Association of American Publishers filed suit against Google this week, saying its Google Print Library program violated copyright.
The publishers' group said it filed the lawsuit after talks with Google broke down, noting that the search giant rejected a proposal to use ISBN numbering system to identify works under copyright and get permission from publishers and authors to scan these works. Google requires publishers to opt out of the program if they don't want their works included.
Google defended the program, saying its use of the works falls under the Fair Use doctrine, and noting that it "this policy is entirely in keeping with our main Web search engine."
Many bloggers sided with Google, citing the "information wants to be free" meme. But a few legal commentators pointed out there were some flaws in the company's arguments, noting that just because Google has public opinion on its side doesn't mean that it has the law on its side as well.
