Video: EU mulls Google Books plan

Internet search giant's plans to digitise millions of books comes before EU for approval.

    Google, the internet search giant, wants to digitise and sell books online, including many that are out of print, in a move that has caused controversy.

    In October last year, the company reached a landmark settlement in the US, agreeing to pay $125m to provide a Book Rights Registry to protect authors and publishers.

    Now Google's plans are going before the European Union, to find ways of digitising millions more books without infringing copyright laws.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
