Textbook Publishers File Lawsuit Decrying Google's Alleged Promotion of Piracy

Blake Brittain writes the following in “Google Sued by Top Textbook Publishers Over Ads for Pirated E-Books” for Reuters:

Google was hit with a lawsuit on [June 5] by educational publishers Cengage, Macmillan Learning, McGraw Hill and Elsevier accusing the tech giant of promoting pirate copies of their textbooks.

The publishers told the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York that Google has ignored thousands of copyright-infringement notices and continues to profit from the sale of pirated digital versions of textbooks advertised through its dominant search engine. …

The complaint said that Google searches for the publishers' work feature heavily discounted, pirated e-book versions at the top of the results.
