Google is getting beaten up about its book initiative, but it doesn't stop them from moving on. But last week, besides for Gary Price at SEW Blog covering Microsoft Announces MSN Book Search; Joins Open Content Alliance it went pretty much unnoticed in the forums. Today, WebmasterWorld featured a thread related to this book craze named Microsoft to put Books from British Library Online which summarizes and discusses an article over at Business Week named Microsoft to digitize 100,000 books.

Mindful of that controversy, Microsoft and the British Library stressed that they will be choosing books only from the older end of the library's vast collection of 13 million titles, as these have long fallen out of copyright.
