Re: Google and Copyright

That would be the Authors Guild, Inc. v Google case ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Authors_Guild,_Inc._v._Google,_Inc. ).

The courts found that Google did *NOT* commit copyright infringement (there is no such thing as copyright _theft_) with it's Google Books search database. So, to answer your question, nope.
