The Authors Guild, Inc., et al. v. Google, Inc.

Objection of, Inc., to Proposed Settlement

less- has officially objected to the proposed settlement in the Google Books copyright infringement case. Amazon points out that it too has engaged in projects that scanned significant amounts of books. Amazon quickly points out, however, that unlike Google, it didn't scan out of print books that were still subject to copyright laws. Rather, Amazon only scanned books that it was able to receive permission to scan from the copyright holder.

This widely debated case has been the subject of significant media and legal coverage. The last day to file objections to the proposed settlement is Friday, September 4, 2009.
