Google Settlement update

PW has an article here regarding the Author’s guild’s objections to Amazon’s formal protest about the Google Settlement agreement. 

In a statement "Amazon’s hypocrisy is breathtaking" and they "needn’t worry, really: this agreement is about out-of-print books. Its lock on the online distribution of in-print books, unfortunately, seems secure." 

The article also lists countries that have filed/or expected to file official complaints as well, including Germany, Canada and New Zealand.

This just keeps getting curious-er and curious-er.
