Publishers Charge the Internet Archive with Copyright Infringement

Four publishers filed a lawsuit today charging the Internet Archive with copyright infringement and asking for an injunction to prevent the IA’s scanning, public display, and distribution of literary works. In its suit, the publishers make clear it is not suing the IA over “the occasional transmission of a title under appropriately limited circumstances,” but rather over the IA’s “purposeful collection of truckloads of in-copyright books to scan, reproduce, and then distribute digital bootleg versions online.”
