US disapproves of the Google online library

Post  Admin on Fri Sep 25, 2009 4:43 am


The US Justice Department has urged a New York court to reject a deal that would allow internet company Google to publish millions of books online. The deal raised copyright and anti-trust issues, the department said, and should be rejected in its current form. The court is expected to give its verdict on the issue early next month. Under the deal - the product of a legal suit Google would establish a $125m (77m) fund to compensate those whose works it published online. It would establish a Book Rights Registry so that authors whose work it included were paid when their material was viewed online. The deal was agreed in October 2008 with the Authors Guild and the Association of American Publishers (AAP) after they sued Google for copyright infringement. Companies including Microsoft, Amazon and Yahoo have all objected to the deal

Wow, Google must have been pretty naive to think that they could get away with this. They had to be aware that they were breaking copyright laws. Maybe they think that they are above the law?
