Senators Want Google to Discuss Copyright Law

Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee said they want Google to appear before them to discuss upcoming antipiracy legislation as well as complaints from some copyright owners that the search company is in a position to profit from the illegal sharing of copyrighted works. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), the committee's chairman, invited a Google, Verizon and The Authors Guild and other companies with a stake in the online copyright fight to appear to give their views about legislation Leahy is preparing to reintroduce in the Senate this year.
