Discussions continue in Google Books lawsuit, attorneys say

Marc Ferranti and Juan Carlos Perez | Sept. 15, 2011
Google and representatives for authors and publishers told a U.S. District Court judge Thursday that they would like to continue discussions on a revised settlement in a copyright infringement case that has dragged on for years.

But the lawsuit not only objects to the orphan works plans but also to all copyrighted books that have been digitized without permission.

The Authors Guild and the other plaintiffs are asking the court to issue an injunction to stop the scanning of copyrighted books without permission from copyright owners and to order the universities to stop giving Google books to scan. The plaintiffs also want the court to impound all digital book copies made without permission from copyright owners.
