Google has settled a seven-year legal spat with the Association of American Publishers (AAP).
Google Settles U.S. Authors Book Scanning Lawsuit [bbc.co.uk]
The settlement lets US publishers decide which works should, or should not, be in Google's library.
This settles one of the main objections to the library project which planned to scan every book unless publishers and authors specifically objected.
"We are pleased that this settlement addresses the issues that led to the litigation," said Tom Allen, head of the AAP in a statement.
