Google Book Deal
Has anyone heard any news on this?
My husband was reading his daily fill of BBC News America and came upon this article on their website.
Apparently Google is seeking the rights to be able to publish eBooks for many out-of-print and non-copyright protected books. They have set up a fund to compensate those authors affected by their proposal.
Other posts I found related to this subject:
I may be interpreting this wrong, but I thought you could already do this. I have eBooks I downloaded for free, such as Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, a bunch of William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens and more. I don’t think Shakespeare is going to grumble…he’s been dead for quite some time. Zombie Shakespeare is wanting his share?!?
