In a book-scanning dispute Google made truce with French publishers by settlement.
California, July 2nd, 2012
Google, the famous online search company was weathering a number of copyright issues. Out of all of them, a significant copyright issue with French publishers was
settled on Monday for a book scanning project. The lawsuit was filed by the association of publishers from France against Google in 2006. The association with 6,000 members came about heavily against the company for their scanned efforts on books and sending the file/e-books over the web.
Violations and copyright issues have been instigated against Google by a large number of other firms as well. The deciding factor in favor for Google has been the
“fair-use” principle of digitizing books and sending them over the World Wide Web from the US copyright laws. Throughout Europe and outside US a number of publishers
and online companies have been at the helm of issue for copyright violations that are numerous. Google has become a partner with the French publisher for the sales of
digital editions of the books it has been publishing over the web. A slight hitch in the overall schema of the settlement is that Google would not cover the publishing of the
books through its competitors like Amazon Kindle stores or Apple’s iBooks.
There are a number of similar copyright issues that are being faced by Goggle presumably, since it has a 97% market share and anything the company aspires forward in
terms of technology in the digital marketplace might lead to offending privacy and sustainability issues of copyright norms and web policy. Securing the distribution rights
for Google on a majority of reflective violations might take a setback in other ways as seen in the French example where the resale rights over web are provided or allowed
for the settling companies. A major interpretation of such partnerships and digitization of online services or product have yet to reach a milestone in relation with Google.
