Keio University became Google's first library partner in Japan with the announcement that they would digitize at least , public domain books.
Google announced that it would digitize up to , both copyrighted and public domain items from Cornell University Library. Google would also provide a digital copy of all works scanned to be incorporated into the university's own library system.
Google added a feature that allows users to share snippets of books that are in the public domain. The snippets may appear exactly as they do in the scan of the book, or as plain text. Google debuted a new feature called "My Library" which allows users to create personal customized libraries, selections of books that they can label, review, rate, or full-text search.
Columbia University was added as a partner in digitizing public domain works. A settlement was reached between the publishing industry and Google after two years of negotiation. Google agreed to compensate authors and publishers in exchange for the right to make millions of books available to the public. About five million were out of print. Google announced the inclusion of magazines in Google Books.
February Google launched a mobile version of Google Book Search, allowing iPhone and Android phone users to read over 1.
Instead of page images, the plain text of the book is displayed. At the annual BookExpo convention in New York, Google signaled its intent to introduce a program that would enable publishers to sell digital versions of their newest books direct to consumers through Google. A French court shut down the scanning of copyrighted books published in France, saying this violated copyright laws.
It was the first major legal loss for the scanning project. April Visual artists were not included in the previous lawsuit and settlement, are the plaintiff groups in another lawsuit, and say they intend to bring more than just Google Books under scrutiny.
It was reported that Google would launch a digital book store called Google Editions. Unlike others, Google Editions would be completely online and would not require a specific device such as kindle, Nook, or iPad.
Google passed 12 million books scanned. It was announced that Google intends to scan all known existing ,, books within a decade, amounting to over 4 billion digital pages and 2 trillion words in total. Google launched the Ngram Viewer, which collects and graphs data on word usage across its book collection. A federal judge rejected the settlement reached between the publishing industry and Google.
Google passed 20 million books scanned. Google reached a settlement with publishers. Ruling in Authors Guild v. The appeals court sided with Google, declaring that Google did not violate copyright law. The US Supreme Court declined to hear the Authors Guild's appeal, which means the lower court's decision stood, and Google would be allowed to scan library books and display snippets in search results without violating the law.
Google has been quite secretive regarding its plans on the future of the Google Books project. Scanning operations had been slowing down since at least , as confirmed by the librarians at several of Google's partner institutions. At University of Wisconsin, the speed had reduced to less than half of what it was in However, the librarians have said that the dwindling pace could be a natural result of maturation of the project — initially stacks of books were entirely taken up for scanning whereas now Google only needed to consider the ones that have not been scanned already.
Despite winning the decade-long litigation in , The Atlantic has said that Google has "all but shut down its scanning operation. It commented that the decade-long legal battle had caused Google to lose its ambition. Through the project, library books were being digitized somewhat indiscriminately regardless of copyright status, which led to a number of lawsuits against Google.
By the end of , Google had reportedly digitized over seven million books, of which only about one million were works in the public domain.
Of the rest, one million were in copyright and in print, and five million were in copyright but out of print. In , a group of authors and publishers brought a major class-action lawsuit against Google for infringement on the copyrighted works. Google argued that it was preserving "orphaned works" — books still under copyright, but whose copyright holders could not be located.
The Authors Guild and Association of American Publishers separately sued Google in for its book project, citing "massive copyright infringement.
The settlement received significant criticism on a wide variety of grounds, including antitrust, privacy, and inadequacy of the proposed classes of authors and publishers. The settlement was eventually rejected,  and the publishers settled with Google soon after. The Authors Guild continued its case, and in their proposed class was certified.
Google appealed that decision, with a number of amici asserting the inadequacy of the class , and the Second Circuit rejected the class certification in July , remanding the case to the District Court for consideration of Google's fair use defense.
In Authors Guild filed another appeal against Google to be considered by the 2nd U. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York.
Google won the case unanimously based on the argument that they were not showing people the full texts but instead snippets, and they are not allowing people to illegally read the book. Authors Guild tried again in to appeal the decision and this time took their case to be considered by the Supreme Court. The case was rejected, leaving the Second Circuit's decision on the case intact, meaning that Google did not violate copyright laws.

Such clarification is important in the new digital age as it affects other scanning projects similar to Google. Other lawsuits followed the Authors Guild's lead.
In a German lawsuit, previously filed, was withdrawn. This is the first such lawsuit to be filed against Google in China. Google agreed on Nov 20 to provide a list of Chinese books it had scanned, but the company refused to admit having "infringed" copyright laws. In March , Thomas Rubin, associate general counsel for copyright, trademark, and trade secrets at Microsoft, accused Google of violating copyright law with their book search service.
Rubin specifically criticized Google's policy of freely copying any work until notified by the copyright holder to stop. Google licensing of public domain works is also an area of concern due to using of digital watermarking techniques with the books.
Some published works that are in the public domain, such as all works created by the U. Federal government , are still treated like other works under copyright, and therefore locked after From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
