Французские издатели решили не судиться с Google, а договариваться

French publishers Albin Michel, Flammarion and Gallimard have confirmed they have dropped charges against Google for digitising copyrighted books from their catalogues without prior permission.

The three said they had decided to abandon the summons against Google France and Google Inc that they had filed on 6th May and 3rd June in order to “facilitate the resumption of talks between the French publishers association (Syndicat National de l’Edition, SNE) and Google over the digitation of copyrighted books and the search for an amicable solution to the litigation”. However, they added they reserved the right to revive the case if the talks fell through.

Франция похожа на Россию системой авторского права. Пора бы и российским издателям сотрудничать с IT-компаниями, а не кричать на каждом углу о пиратах и пиастрах. Тем более, что настоящим пиратам на эти крики наплевать, и пиастров от них не дождёшься.
