The article reports on the Google Book Search from Google Inc. and the causes why it demises. It notes that the Google Book Search is a service that permits patrons or readers to locate the books they are searching through typing the contents fulltext by keywords. In 2004, the Book Search of Google also began the Google Print for Libraries (GPL) where it entered into an agreement with several large research libraries to scan the contents of their holding. However, this idea became complicated in connection with the copyright law and was demised after the Author's Guild of America (AGA) and the Association of American Publishers (AAP) file a lawsuit accusing Google for copyright infringement under the section 106 of Copyright Act.
