Authors' Guild sues universities over book digitization project

Quote:
With the planned settlement between Google and book publishers still on indefinite hold, a legal battle by proxy has started. Google partnered with many libraries at US universities in order to gain access to the works it wants to digitize. Now, several groups that represent book authors have filed suit against those universities attempting to block both digital lending and an orphaned works project.

The suit is being brought by the Authors' Guild, its equivalents in Australia, Quebec and the UK, and a large group of individual authors. Its target: some major US universities, including Michigan, the University of California system, and Cornell.
