Thursday 24 Sep 2009

French publishers and authors face off in court against Google on Thursday when their three-year bid to fight the Internet giant's plan to scan and sell books online goes to trial.
Backed by France's 530-member Publishers' Association (SNE) and its SGDL Society of Authors, the plaintiffs are contesting Google's 2005 campaign to digitize books without the prior authorisation of publishers or authors.
