Google ebook Software for iPads was one of several new Kindle software products released on Tuesday, but the company says it’s not available in the UK.
Google said in a blog post that it was not aware of any legal action being taken against the developers of the app, but noted that it would take the appropriate action if it did.
The announcement came on the heels of a similar announcement by Apple.
Apple is not the first company to take legal action against a developer of an ebook software.
In October, Amazon also sued Adobe for copyright infringement.
Amazon’s Kindle ebook software is one of the most popular ebook software available today, and it’s the only one available in most major countries.
It’s also a critical part of Amazon’s strategy to sell more ebooks in the U.S. as a result of its growing ebook business.
The app was originally developed for the Kindle Fire tablet and later was ported to other devices.
Last month, the Kindle ebook app was removed from the app store in the United Kingdom, although Amazon says the decision was based on an “infringement notice” from Apple.
The company is now offering the app on other devices in the country.
A Google spokeswoman said the company had no comment on the UK announcement.
