US photographers and illustrators sued Google for copyright infringement on Wednesday demanding compensation for images that appear in books being digitally scanned by the Internet giant.

"This case is about fairness and compensation," said James McGuire, a partner in the law firm handling the class action suit, Mishcon de Reya New York.

"It's only right that if someone uses something you create, you should be paid for it," McGuire said.

Parties to the suit include the American Society of Media Photographers, Graphic Artists Guild, Picture Archive Council of America, North American Nature Photography Association and the Professional Photographers of America.
