Microsoft blasts Google for book-scanning plan

Microsoft blasts Google for book-scanning plan: "Software giant Microsoft Corp. lashed out at Google Inc.'s rival book-scanning project, saying the internet company's plan 'systematically violates copyright.'

In prepared remarks he is scheduled to deliver Tuesday to a publishing industry group, a Microsoft lawyer said Google is cutting into the profits of authors and publishers in its rush to grab content.

'Companies that create no content of their own, and make money solely on the backs of other people's content, are raking in billions through advertising revenue,' wrote Thomas C. Rubin, an associate general counsel at Microsoft, in the speech he was scheduled to give at the annual meeting of the Association of American Publishers in New York."
