 LLRX.com - How Dewey Classify OCLC's Lawsuit
OCLC's chief argument stresses that use by the Library Hotel is “likely to cause confusion as to sponsorship or authorization by OCLC, or alternatively, destroy the origin-identifying function of the Dewey Marks.” Complaint at 10.

OCLC has clearly not assented to the use, as evidenced by the language of the complaint itself.

 OCLC Project Opens WorldCat Records to Google   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
The announcement urged OCLC member libraries to participate in the program in order to increase the visibility of library collections to current and potential patrons, as well as enhance the image of libraries to administrators and funding agencies and improve the quality of material accessible from the Web.
OCLC launched the project in June 2003 after a year of extensive consultation with library and information industry leaders.
Clearly, the expansion to include OCLC’s records fits Google’s mission statement to “organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” A Google spokesperson pointed to this as part of the company’s effort to reach beyond the open Web, as it has, for example, in including IEEE abstracts.
