Google moves to allay concerns

September 08, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Google Inc. said it was making concessions to publishers outside the U.S. to allay worries over its books project.

The company plans to sell to U.S. customers digital versions of out-of-print books that are still under U.S. copyright. Under a settlement with U.S. authors and publishers, this will cover all books unless the copyright holders object.

Google said it would add two representatives of foreign authors and publishers to the nonprofit board set up to manage U.S. copyrights and wouldn't display without consent books that are out of print in the U.S. but available elsewhere.
