The Authors Guild, et al. v. Google Inc., No. 05-CV-8136 (S.D.N.Y.)
This lawsuit challenges Google's plan to digitize, search, and show snippets of in-copyright books and to share digital copies with libraries without the explicit permission of the copyright owner. Under the plan, and as part of its Google Library Project, Google has digitized millions of books from leading libraries.
