Today, the Authors Guild filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Google concerning the Google Print project (subject of a handful of previous posts). Press release from the Authors Guild: here. Google's statement on its blog: here.
This topic has a tendency to veer away from contracts and toward copyright law, but it is irresistible. Besides, whichever side the court takes, the case's aftermath will certainly raise contract issues for authors and publishers.
