The Federation of Indian Publishers (FIP) and Indian Reprographic Rights Organisation (IRRO) have moved the New York district court against The New Google Books Settlement (GBS 2.0) alleging copyright violation for scanning several books in Indian languages without notifying the authors.

“In the name of innovation, Google has scanned several thousands of copyrighted books with no permission from the authors – whether for free or for value. They have also scanned books in Indian vernacular languages. This is a clear violation of Indian and international copyright laws,” Siddharth Arya, legal counsel for IRRO, has said.
