Sell Your Book Via Google



Danny has details of a new initiative from Google that will allow publishers (and authors) to sell online versions of their books through Google Book Search.

Publishers set a price, then consumers can buy and read the book online. At the moment, the program supposedly will not allow copies of the book to be saved to a computer or pages to be printed (“copy pages”) to be made.

Danny notes Google’s attempts to ward off complaints that Google is scanning books via the Google Library program and selling them. As Google states…

GOOGLE IS NOT SELLING BOOKS THAT IT HAS SCANNED FROM THE COMPLETELY SEPARATE GOOGLE LIBRARY PROGRAM.

    I love how they state that pages cannot be saved. I will make an Andy Beal type wager and say that by the end of March, someone will have the java code cracked to save every page to the hard drive. Besides, right now I can take a screen shot of what I am seeing on my screen. That is then saved to the hard drive. Bottomline is if you can see it, the information already resides somewhere on your computer and therefore can be saved.
