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.
