Hi, If you have a book which you think need to be shared and books are in such a way so that copyright doesn't matter, there could be an agency who can scan the book and can put for you online. If everyone does that, we will have another library available online.

Utterly and completely baked, since 1971 [krelnik, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 21 2004]

       a) Copyright *does* matter.
b) Who is going to pay for this agency?
c) Online books are Widely Baked. What exactly is original about this idea - expecting someone else to pay for it?

       a. Old books for instance don't have copyright. b. Talking about PRIVATE BOOKS that I OWN and AM AUTHORIZED to put up on the net. c. I pay for the scanning, and every book I put online gives me the right for a few books to be read. Would work if not been overcrowded by e-librarys like proj gutenberg, who even do copyright material, and charge for your reading.
