Google Print lawsuit number two

A couple of weeks ago the Authors' Guild filed a copyright lawsuit against Google. Now the Association of American Publishers has joined in the fray with their own suit. Slashdot reports:

"The Association of American Publishers, an organization of book publishers including Pearson Plc's Penguin unit and McGraw-Hill sued Google over its plan to create a digital Web library of printed books. The Association of American Publishers sued Wednesday after talks broke down with Google over copyright issues raised by the Google Print Library Project. Publishers say Google will infringe copyrights unless it gets advance permission for the scanning. The suit is the second by the publishing industry against Google's library plans and underscores the worries sparked by Google's expansion beyond Web search."
