PARIS—A French court found Google Inc. guilty of copyright infringement for scanning books and publishing extracts online without a French publisher's consent, a ruling that could hinder the U.S search company's ongoing drive to create a giant global online library.
In a Friday ruling that Google said it would appeal, the court ordered the U.S. company to pay €300,000 ($501,000) to French publisher La Martinière and to remove online extracts of the publisher's books.
