Writers Sue Google, Accusing It of Copyright Violation - New York Times

This will be an important case to watch. Google could, obviously settle out of court, but I hope this goes to trial. It would be helpful to have a ruling on this case.
"Three authors filed suit against Google yesterday contending that the company's program to create searchable digital copies of the contents of several university libraries constituted "massive copyright infringement."

The lawsuit, filed in United States District Court in Manhattan, is the first to arise from the Google Print Library program, the fledgling effort aimed at a searchable library of all the world's printed books."
