Another example of Google attempting to make all of the world's information widely available...
Amazon.com Inc., the world's largest Internet retailer, challenged a request by Google Inc. to provide documents that may be used in the fight over Google's book-scanning project.
Amazon.com said Google is improperly trying to get confidential information to help defend a program that would compete with the retailer. Google said it needs the documents to fend off lawsuits challenging its Google Library project and pledges to keep subpoenaed information confidential.
