Libraries Ask Judge to Monitor Google Books Settlement

Three groups representing libraries, including the American Library Association, the largest such group in the United States, have asked a federal judge to exercise “vigorous oversight” over a class-action settlement between Google, authors and publishers...

The Electronic Frontier Foundation, an online civil liberties group, has said that it, too, plans to ask the court to ensure that Google does not monitor the reading habits of users of its Book Search service.

“What we’d like to see Google do is make affirmative representations as to how they will protect privacy,” said Cindy Cohn, legal director of the foundation.
