Google begins project to catalog every book ever printed after winning big legal victory

Back in 2004 Google set out on a quest to digitize and catalog every book ever printed.  Some of the authors and publishers of those books didn’t like that and proceeded to begin an eight-year legal battle with the tech company. Fortunately for  book lovers and advocates of internet freedom, Google has finally won the battle and is now beginning its ambitious project.

Google just scored a big victory in the eight-year legal saga over its ambitious project to digitize and catalog every book ever printed. Judge Denny Chin of the Southern District of New York sided with Google today by ruling that the scanning project didn’t violate copyright, as the authors and publishers representing the rights holders had claimed.
