Microsoft, Amazon.com and Yahoo plan to join a consortium to fight a proposed settlement Google has made with authors and publishers over its Google Book Search service, according to a report published in The New York Times.
The coalition, which is being formed by the Internet Archive and tentatively called the Open Book Alliance, will be announced in the next couple of weeks, according to the news report. It plans to oppose the agreement in briefs to the court and tell the U.S. Department of Justice that the deal is anticompetitive.
Some library associations and groups representing authors also plan to join the coalition, according to the report.
