We recently blogged an item about the Google Books lawsuit.  The issue is receiving a lot of mainstream news coverage, see the Guardian and the BBC coverage on the topic:

According to the Guardian article a hearing will be held this week at the European commission to “examine the impact of an agreement between American authors, publishers and Google to resuscitate millions of out-of-print, in-copyright books“.  I am keeping a look out for news on this and keep the blog updated.
