Google Book: Commission tests the water ...

Via Stephanie Bodoni (Bloomberg) comes breaking news that the European Commission has intensified its review of Google Book, to analyze how it might affect authors' and publishers' copyrights. The European Commission's operation is described at this stage as "a fact-finding mission, not an investigation".

The Commission wants precise details on the exact scope of the US$125 million settlement, as well as how many European works and publications are potentially affected.
