Coalition Against Google Book Digitization Settlement Launches Blog

This is a follow-up to Monday's Library Boy post entitled Controversy Heats Up Over Google Book Search Settlement.

The Open Book Alliance has launched a blog.

The Alliance is a coalition formed by the Internet Archive, Microsoft,, Yahoo and a number of library associations to oppose a settlement in a class action copyright infringement suit reached last year between search giant Google and U.S.-based publisher and author organizations.

The settlement is related to Google's plan to digitize millions of copyright-covered and public domain books to make them available to a worldwide audience.
