Google and the Library Britnica 250,000 works escanearn

The British Library and the Google search engine agree to publish 250,000 books out of copyright between 1700 and 1870, including underwater navigation project, Narciso Monturiol, inventor of the first motor-powered submarine. The plan, announced through a press release, is part of the controversial Google Book Search project, which are already shipped about 40 libraries in the world.

The Google Books project is currently under review in U.S. courts. Google signed in 2009 an agreement with U.S. authors and publishers to try to close a complaint which accused him of scanned books without respecting copyright. The agreement was discussed by some European governments, experts, lobbyists and the Department of Justice U.S., which forced a revision of it, however, has been rejected by the courts.
