The battle over searching the entire text of books continues to hot up with Google issuing subpoenas to Amazon, the Association of American Publishers, Yahoo, Microsoft, Random House, HarperCollins and Holtzbrinck Publishers seeking details relating to each company's book search projects.

Responses from Microsoft, Yahoo and the three publishers have not yet been filed; replies are not due until late November.
