British book publishers are considering legal action against Google over the search engine company’s plans to create a virtual library by digitising millions of books held in public libraries and universities.

The Publishers Association yesterday refused to rule out taking legal action over Google’s Print Project, saying that it was holding a “full and frank debate” with the company and other parties.

The comments came after it emerged that the Authors Guild, which represents 8,000 authors, has filed a lawsuit against Google, accusing the internet company of “massive copyright infringements” at the expense of the rights of individual writers. The suit, filed in a district court in New York, demands damages and an injunction against further alleged infringements.
