Is US trying to rule the world and Google trying to rule the Internet

    Anywhere in the world there is something right or wrong it seems that the US Govt would like to say or do something about it (regardless of whatever be the opinion of US general public )....

    On the other hand Google has gone ahead and scanned all the books of the real world without bothering about the copyright laws across the globe.  In the real world anyone intending to use a copyrighted content cannot do so until he gets a permission from the owner where as new rules set by Google says if the copyright owner does not say anything or contact Google, Google has the right to use it the way it has done ....

    Do you think in both cases it is just MIGHT IS RIGHT?

    I thought most information posted on the net is posted by a participating and willing PERSON, not Google per se. hmm seeing a battering of HR of others gets US and other nations upset. US and others don't come out unless ASKED.

    Google respects copyright laws.
    The majority of books that have been scanned are out-of-copyright and public domain, and copyrighted material is not distributed freely.
    Book that are out of print but not out-of-copyright are being offered as previews and for purchase.

    So, when you are saying the authors must contact Google to stop their books from being scanned, you are saying that they should not allow their work to be sold for them.

    "In-print books are books that publishers are still actively selling, the ones you see at most bookstores. This agreement expands the online marketplace for in-print books by letting authors and publishers turn on the "preview" and "purchase" models that make their titles more easily available through Book Search.

    In-copyright but out-of-print books
    Out-of-print books aren’t actively being published or sold, so the only way to procure one is to track it down in a library or used bookstore. When this agreement is approved, every out-of-print book that we digitize will become available online for preview and purchase, unless its author or publisher chooses to "turn off" that title. We believe it will be a tremendous boon to the publishing industry to enable authors and publishers to earn money from volumes they might have thought were gone forever from the marketplace.

    Out-of-copyright books
    This agreement doesn't affect how we display out-of-copyright books; we will continue to allow Book Search users to read, download and print these titles, just as we do today."


    Google settled the issue when they purchased reCaptcha.
