Google's Moon Shot

This week, The New Yorker has an article entitled Google's Moon Shot and it details Google's plan to scan and digitize several university libraries and also to made searchable all published books. The article describes some of the challenges and objections by publishers and authors. One interesting aspect is that several of those publishers that are partners with Google in the Book Search project, are also at the same time suing Google to stop the project.
