Google Changes Scanning Project
Originally, Google wanted to scan all or parts of five major libraries and provide access to them. They would scan and provide access to entire texts of non-copyrighted materials. They would also scan entire copyrighted texts, but provide access to just small parts of these materials.
Because of comments, they have modified the project. They will begin scanning copyrighted materials November 1st, giving publishers time to review their titles and let Google know which titles not to scan and index.
