Google Rivals Gang Up

The NYTimes reports today that Amazon, Yahoo, and Microsoft have joined the Open Content Alliance and other groups in opposing the Google Books Settlement. The new coalition, which the Times says is tentatively named the Open Book Alliance, "plans to make a case to the Justice Department that the arrangement is anticompetitive. Members of the alliance will most likely file objections with the court independently."

The DoJ is already examining the proposed settlement.
