<![CDATA[ <![CDATA[In the long-running action over Google's "Library Project," brought by the Authors Guild, American Society of Media Photographers, and others, Judge Denny Chin certified the class over Google's objection, and denied Google's motion to dismiss. The opinion: Authors Guild v. Google class action Several authors’ rights groups brought this action in 2005 over the Library Project, through which Google is scanning millions of books from university libraries and making “snippets” of these books available through Google searches. The parties had reached an historic settlement in 2010, but Judge Chin ultimately rejected it on March 22, 2011, finding that the settlement went beyond what was permitted by the law because it involved agreements for future copyrighted works.
