Google Library Project: concerns raised

by brian_turner

Nick Wilson at Threadwatch raises concerns over the Google Library Project.

He points out simmering copyright objections express both by Daniel Brandt at Google Watch, and also carried by an article from the Times, in All the world?fs best books at a click in which concerns are expressed at one single organisation effectively owning “proprietary rights” over all the material it digitises for search.

Ultimately, issues about electronic rights may also sour the process, an issue that Google is no stranger to. Concerns already exist that other methods of Google storing and processing information, such as website caches, may violate international copyright laws. However, Google feels that it works well within the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
