Publishers Paste Google
Updated from 11:35 a.m.
Book publishers sued Google (GOOG), escalating a nasty spat over the search-engine giant's ambitious book-indexing project.
The Association of American Publishers said it sued the Mountain View, Calif., Internet giant Wednesday morning after talks broke down. The suit seeks a declaration by the court that Google commits infringement when it scans entire books covered by copyright, and a court order preventing it from doing so without permission of copyright owners. Google has said its book-indexing plans are covered by the so-called fair use doctrine.
