Search giant Google Inc. has expanded Google Print, its controversial book-scanning project, into eight European countries.
Native language sites have been launched in France, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and Spain. At each of the new Google Print locations, users can see snippets of the book where their search term appears.
Several European book publishers, located in Spain, Holland, France and Italy, are supplying some or all of their book collections to Google, according to published reports.
