Publishers Say No to Google's Library Digitization Program

May 25, 2005 - 10:33 am 0 by

We talked about Google Print becoming Mainstream in the past, and as it becomes more mainstream and larger, publishers will have issues with it. Recently, the Google Library Project has undergone some widespread controversy amongst the publishing community. Gary Price, who is a library guy and also a publisher, blogged about this on Monday under the title Some Publishers Not Happy With Google's Library Digitization Program. Then Danny Sullivan, who has his origins as a writer and publisher, and the leading authority figure in the SEM world, followed up Gary's entry with his own named Forget Google Print Copyright Infringement; Search Engines Already Infringe. Both entry titles are incredibly descriptive of their respective thoughts on the topic. There is some concern as well, that this is leading towards Google Taking Over the World.

A forum thread at WebmasterWorld discusses an article published yesterday at the Washington Post named Publishers Protest Google Library Project. The SEM world is buzzing about it at WebmasterWorld.
