Google Print

Matt Deatherage:

Neither Google, nor any person or corporation, has any legal right to a digital copy of any book I own just because Google wants it and I’m willing to let it make the copy. I may have a “fair use” right to a digital copy of a book I own, for my own personal use, but that doesn’t mean I can give the digital copy to anyone else without also giving them the original book. Any of these libraries may have the right to digitize copies of their collections, but if that’s the case, the copies belong to them, not to Google or whoever made the copies.
