Google & U.S. Publishers Debate Digitization Project

“Google has again clashed with publishers over its controversial program to scan, digitize and make searchable the collections of libraries in the U.S. and the U.K.

“Publishers hit out at Google over the plan, and the effect it will have on copyright, at Monday’s launch of a report on digital rights management from the All Party Internet Group, an independent British parliamentary organization. The Google Book Search project, previously called Google Print, was launched in 2004. It quickly attracted controversy, and Google is currently being sued for alleged copyright infringement in the U.S.”
