    Copyrights!? Bull! So do they want their book? to be read, or just bought?! Do they worry about the money, or about their literature or point of view being seen? If the author really wants to write a book because they like it, then make the books free damn it!

    The setting has a weird similarity? with the main colors of the major rivals in communication service providers in Canada- Rogers and Bell. The sofa was a recurring theme in their ad wars, often colored partly in both colors, of course coloring a greater proportion of it in the main color of the sponsor of the ad.

    Note that I don’t mean to say that we should get rid of copyright. We just need to seriously revise it to make sure it’s? not about making companies richer but about maintaining the rights of the authors. Publishing via Google Books could actually be a profitable idea for many authors, but it’s obviously contrary to the interests of existing publishers (what about exclusivity and such). I’m as squeamish as the next guy about Google becoming OmniCorp, but for the time being, they do a lot of good.

    Google is a company alright, but not everything a company does for selfish reasons is ultimately bad. Compare Microsoft’s treatment of Open Source with Google’s for a quick? example. As a matter of fact, the copyright holders (the publishers, NOT the authors) are companies too — what makes you think their motives are purer than Google’s? They’re afraid of becoming redundant, not of authors not getting paid properly (which has been *their* doing for the past 500 years anyway).

    Online books will have a big market.
    Real books will still be the? best.
    Looking at a screen hours on end is bad for you.

    When you run? a search, select “Full view only” from the “Show:” dropdown menu in the blue bar (right under the search box). This will only show you books available in entirety.

  14. LordMortex

    Fuck copyright! -.-
    All books? should be public domain, after 20 years!

    i really don’t appreciate your strict totalitarian interpretation of what is actually the most flexible free? language in the spoken world.

    Since you’re being so vicious in your attack on someone’s grammar.

    Might I point out that you spell, “idealising” and “romanticising” with S’s, not Zeds.

    It’s called the English language for a reason.

    Please maintain correct English spelling.

    It’s only due to the cancer that is Microsoft word’s spell checker that? has allowed the semi literateness of so called US spelling to expand outside the US’s border.

    On a more serious note, don’t you think this service has actually ushered in? a new era of communications…….!!! Strange if u dont.

  18. drealm

    you fail? at basic grammar and think your above the laws of the english language.

    i’m sorry but i will not stoop to arguing with a person who wouldn’t use this service anyways.

    it’s clear your idealizing and romanticizing the use of this service as if it was a new Victorian era being ushered in. but whatever, believe in whatever you want…i guess…

  19. siddkulk

    I? expected you to point out just that, nothing else……U passed the Turing test for dumbness, you dumb ass…

  20. pmunchie

    hi hot stuff!?

  21. hanga73

    is there a filter or a search clue to find out which books? are available in their entirety and which are only partially readable? I couldn’t find such a guidance

  22. drealm
