Google Spends $7M in Diverse Print Pubs for Class-Action Settlement

Google is engaged in one of the largest print legal-notice campaigns in history, spending about $7 million of an $8 million campaign on notices in print newspapers and magazines around the world.

The campaign is a move required under a class-action settlement which will have Google paying $125 million to create a system under which customers will be charged for reading a copyrighted book, according to The New York Times. The suit against Google was filed in federal court by a large group of authors and publishers who argued that Google's plan to scan all the books in the world violated their copyrights.
