Google's first legal victory in the battles over its Google Books Library Project

WBG, a German publisher, droped its petition for a preliminary injunction against the Google Books Library Project after being told by the Copyright Chamber of the Regional Court of Hamburg that its petition was unlikely to succeed. The court indicated that the display of short snippets from in-copyright books and the scanning of the books in the U.S. does not infringe German copyright law.

For more information on the project and several other pending lawsuits in the U.S. and in France see this overview!
