New Class Action Lawsuit Against Google

Google is now facing a separate class action lawsuit over their reproduction of books online. Photographers and illustrators today filed suit claiming Google displays copyrighted images without compensating the artists who created them.

The 2005 lawsuit filed by authors and publishers is expected to be settled soon. Visual artists were excluded from participating in that case.  The new lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in New York.  You can read more on CNN’s SciTechBlog.
