Google Urges End To Authors' Digital Book Lawsuit

(Reuters) - Google Inc retook the offensive against thousands of authors claiming it copied their works without permission, and urged the end of a class-action lawsuit arising from its ambitious plan to build the world's largest digital book library.
  
Friday's request by the world's largest search engine company followed a federal judge's March 2011 rejection of a sweeping $125 million settlement of the now seven-year-old case. Talks to revive an accord later broke down.
   
Google has said it has scanned more than 20 million books, and posted English-language snippets of more than 4 million, since agreeing in 2004 with large research libraries to digitize current and out-of-print works for its Google Books website.
   
While Google planned to provide only snippets online to comply with copyright laws governing fair use, The Authors Guild and groups representing photographers and graphic artists complained that it amounted to "massive copyright infringement."
   
In a filing with the U.S. District court in Manhattan, Google said authors have shown no economic harm from its scanning and display of their works and the creation of a searchable index to find them.
   
The company also said authors actually benefit because the database helps people find and buy their books, and that there is a "significant public benefit" from providing access to information that might otherwise not be found. For More on this story from Yahoo News, please click (Here).
   
My, My, My, I found this story to be somewhat very interesting!!!  For it seems the position that Google is taking on when Google Posts copyright material, even though it's only "Snippet's", it's OK, in fact they feel it's a benefit to the Owner's of the copyright material that they have done so???  However, when We Blogger's do the same on Our Blogs, well that is a whole different story.  Seems to me, "What's good for the goose, should also be good for the gander"?  Just My two cents on this matter and with this said, and it's not good guys, here is......
