    Il contributo ricostruisce la storia di Google relativa al progetto noto come «Google Books», teso a creare una libreria digitale planetaria, per tempo intercettato da azioni collettive intentate dalle associazioni degli autori ed editori nord-americane e poi approdato ad un tentativo di composizione della controversia in base ad un accordo transattivo. Dopo aver illustrato gli ambiti fattuali del progetto e ricostruito la storia processuale relativa alle "class action", gli autori incentrano l'analisi sulle questioni concorrenziali sollevate dall'iniziativa, con una duplice prospettiva: anzitutto per domandarsi se la composizione del contenzioso tra privati nell'ambito di una "class action" rappresenti strumento idoneo di "public policy"; e, ancora, per valutare se la condotta di Google sia nel complesso illecita in base alla normativa nord-americana.
