The Association of American Publishers has filed a lawsuit against Google, claiming that its Print Library Project, which envisages the digital copying and distributing of copyrighted works without the prior permission of the copyright holders, infringes the rights of those holders. The AAP has asked the U. S. District Court, Southern District of New York, to issue a court order preventing Google from further developing its project and declaring that it commits infringement when it scans material under copyright without permission of the rights holder. Read more here in a press release from the AAP. The suit is the second to be filed over Google's Print Library Project.
