Photographers lack standing to sue? Really?

From the linked article (my bolding of text)

Quote
A Manhattan federal judge in May rejected Google’s argument that lawsuits by the Authors Guild and the American Society of Media Photographers should be dismissed because the groups lacked standing to sue for copyright infringement.
