This paper considers the legal position of internet search company Google's Book Search project, primarily from an Australian copyright law perspective. An overview of Google generally and the Book Search project specifically is provided as background to discussion on potential liability for direct and indirect copyright infringement that Google may have as result of the project. Key variations between US and Australian law are outlined as they relate to the Book Search project. Finally implications arising from the legality of the project are briefly considered.
