  1. It would be great if an engineer went rogue and released everything. I’m not sure how you’d even do that though. Where would you send all that data?

  2. > nobody is allowed to read them

    Well, the NSA is…

  3. Slightly off topic, but back in the 00’s when I was a student at my university, they were just beginning to roll out their “next gen” library, and touted how “convenient” it would be to put the books in cylindrical bins that auto-rotated so attendants could pick your books for you. They praised it for being “high tech” so you didn’t have to do the work of walking down the aisles and finding it yourself.

    This of course is at the cost of privacy, because now they have a record of every book you even thought of reading, and secondly, it totally prevents you from walking up and down the aisles and just browsing. Now you have to do it on the computer and pretty much know what you want to read first, rather than seeing every other book next to it.

    But what really got me was when they called it “high tech”, no bitch, high tech is you scan ALL the books, and make them available online to anyone with a library card so they can read them anywhere.

  4. I think it is in the earth interests to make them available to everyone.

  5. Since no one actually read the article, the issue was not with the copyright holders.

    A deal was made with the Authors Guild that Google would license the scans. Any author could opt out, and in situations where a book was out of print, copyright holders could get paid for having their books rented or whatever. If the copyright was ambiguous, the licensing money would go toward figuring out who owns the copyright.

    The Authors Guild was really happy with the whole deal, it was actually going to pump a lot of money into all of these books, many of which were out of print with unknown copyright.

    The problem was that Google had monopolized it. MS, Amazon and probably a million other companies thought it was unfair that this big deal was for like every book in existence but specifically only with Google. That’s why the DOJ shut it down. Not because of the copyright stuff.

  6. Google pays nothing to the people doing the scanning of each page I read. Was some article about this few years ago.

  7. 50 PB?

    Is that correct? That will equal to 2 gig per scanned book? I know they are scanning very old books as well, loads of pictures and whatnot, and you wouldn’t miss anything on these books – but they are also scanning ordinary books, but does those haft to be more than a mere 2MB?

    50 PB just seems like way off? I love the idea of all the major library has a digital copy – aslong as everyone can download the entire catelouge, so Google dont hold the only copy!!

  8. This accurately describes the state of my nas as well

  9. Wasn’t Google the one who is or is still scanning allthe books in various libraries? If they are then I think those books should be available like in every library.

  10. decentralize the knowledge now is possible, in the past was more complicated, but copyright wnat it in one place, control it…. till they dissapear with the content
