Germans taking Google to court
A lot has already been said about Google Books in the last couple of weeks. Last week we already mentioned that several European national societies were opposing to Google's book deal with American libraries.
The filing was signed by Johannes Christian Wichard, deputy director general of the Directorate Commercial and Economic Law, in Germany's Justice Ministry. He believes the deal is against German laws and doesn't support the German authors and publishers: "The decision of this court with respect to this settlement will have the dramatic and long-range effect of creating a new worldwide copyright regime without any input from those who will be greatly impacted -- German authors, publishers and digital libraries and German citizens," he said.
