Revived Google Books Case Chugs Onwards
More than a year after Judge Denny Chin blew up an epic settlement agreement, Google and the Authors Guild are back in court today.
The Guild is suing its former partner for scanning books without permission while a group representing photographers is also appearing before Chin to press copyright claims of its own.
At today’s hearing the Authors Guild is set to ask Chin to confirm that the country’s writers can sue together. Google is opposing the request while also seeking to throw out the Authors Guild and photographers’ complaints altogether.
