Class Action Filed in Google Books Case
by George H. Pike
The long-delayed lawsuit over the Google Book project took a significant step toward court action and potentially farther away from a settlement with the filing of a motion for Class Certification by The Authors Guild and several individual authors. With the filing, the authors are asking the court to move the case forward as a class action lawsuit, with the guild and authors representing a class of thousands or more individual authors. This could increase the possibility of significant damages against Google if they are found to have infringed on the authors' copyrights. Google is expected to oppose the motion to certify the class and is also expected to ask the court to dismiss the case outright.
