Google has to pay for Book Search
Google has to pay about 125 million dollars to settle lawsuits against Google Book Search, the service scans entire books and makes them searchable. This was published by Reuters earlier this week.
Google explained that only parts of the books are displayed to the user. The full versions are only stored on Google's servers and not publicly accessible. So, the search giant was of the opinion that it was not obliged to pay. For about two years there were plenty of discussions in the courtroom with the following outcome: Google should pay. It has to pay 125 million dollars over the past two years to the copyright holders.
