Law Suits Around Google Book Scanning, Gmail Buzz

Two law suits or future law suits are currently up for Google.

In one, as Business Week writes, Google “was sued over claims its Buzz social- networking service violated the privacy rights of users of the company’s Gmail service ... The case, which seeks class action, or group, status was filed by Barry Feldman of New York, who claims Google automatically activated the Buzz program from his e-mail account”.

Also, as the New York Times writes, “On Wednesday, the American Society of Media Photographers and other groups representing visual artists plan to file a class-action lawsuit against Google, asserting that the company’s efforts to digitize millions of books from libraries amount to large-scale infringement of their copyrights.”
