"But the publisher wanted to ensure German copyrighted titles would not be scanned in future without prior permission from publishers and took Google to court over this issue. The court, however, advised that this decision was a matter for the US courts. The Hamburg court also advised the publisher that Google’s previous action to remove WBG titles from Google Book Search ruled out a verdict of copyright infringement . Following the court’s assessment, the publisher decided to retract its case."
