Chinese author plans lawsuit over Google Books; CNet News, 12/28/09

Tom Krazit, CNet News; Chinese author plans lawsuit over Google Books:

"A Chinese author plans to sue Google for scanning one of her books into the Google Books database without her permission, according to a report.

Mian Mian intends to file suit this week against Google, claiming copyright infringement after discovering that her third book, "Acid Lovers," was scanned by Google as part of its book digitization project, according to AFP. The suit would be the first filed against Google in China over the Google Books project, which itself is no stranger to the courtroom."
