Writers Sue Google, Accusing It of Copyright Violation - New York Times
Writers Sue Google, Accusing It of Copyright Violation - New York Times: "'We regret that this group has chosen litigation to try to stop a program that will make books and the information within them more discoverable to the world,' the statement said. 'Google Print directly benefits authors and publishers by increasing awareness of and sales of the books in the program. And, if they choose, authors and publishers can exclude books from the program if they don't want their material included. Copyrighted books are indexed to create an electronic card catalog and only small portions of the books are shown unless the content owner gives permission to show more.'"
