The US Supreme Court has tossed out a challenge by a group of authors who claim Google’s massive program of scanning millions of books for an online library violates copyright law.The Authors Guild and several individual writers have
argued that the project, known as Google Books, illegally deprives them of
revenue. The court left in place an October 2015 ruling in favour of Google.

The court said the case “tests the boundaries of fair use,” but found
Google’s practices were ultimately allowed under the law.

Several prominent writers, including novelist and poet Margaret Atwood and
lyricist and composer Stephen Sondheim had backed the Authors Guild.
