March 17th, 2010 by karen coyle.. The March 16, 2010.. New York Times.. reported that C-Span, the television network that has covered 23 years of US government meetings and events, is making its entire video ar.. kamagra now co uk delivery.. chive available, free and open, on the Internet.. This is news of monumental importance, not only for history buffs but in support of a democratic society.. Openness is happening, and that s a Good Thing.. Openness in our world of metadata is also happening, although we re less likely to read about it in the newspaper.. Over the last few weeks and months numerous libraries have freed their data from its dark web data store and made it available for open access.. What has been a trickle from library catalogs may be turning into a wave.. In January of this year, the library at CERN in Switzerland published its catalog as Open Data on the Web.. The.. announcement.. stated:.. Librarians are in general very favourable to the principles of Open Access, but surprisingly few libraries have so far set free the data.. they produce.. themselves.. As one of the first scientific libraries in the world, the CERN Library offers now the bibliographic book records, held in its library catalog, to be freely downloaded by any third party.. The records are provided under the Public Domain Data License, a license that permits colleagues around the world to reuse and upgrade the data for any purpose.. The announcement also calls for other libraries to follow suit, in particular libraries and institutions that are signatories to the.. Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities.. In February, The Ghent University Library announced that it now makes available a full dump of its.. catalog data.. This data is being made available under the.. Open Database License.. On the 12th of March, the.. University and City Library of Cologne.. announced the open release of approximately 3 million bibliographic records from its catalog.. The Library has released the data using Creative Commons license.. CC0.. , which places the data in the public domain.. Over 600 downloads, from around the world, were recorded at the site in the first day after the announcement, proof that there is an active need for shared bibliographic metadata.. Those wishing to follow the project can gather at the.. Linked Open Data.. site, which also has pointers to the file downloads.. The project hopes to offer the data in a Linked Data format in the near future.. Other libraries have made their data available with less fanfare, but their quiet contributions were often pioneering.. The Open Library s.. data source.. page lists over two dozen sources of bibliographic data from libraries, and yet others from publishers.. This data is loaded into the Open Library, whose catalog is available for.. download.. either in bulk or through APIs.. In support of this growing movement to make bibliographic data available for use and re-use, the.. Open Knowledge Foundation.. has announced a new.. working group on open bibliographic data.. comprehensive knowledge archive network.. , a registry of open data and content, has a page for registering.. open bibliographic data sets.. And of course, in the interest of LOCKSS (Lots of Copies Keeps Stuff Safe) and of contributing to the Open Library project, anyone with bibliographic data is encourage to upload their data to the.. Internet Archive.. following these.. simple instructions.. (Note that.. there.. are copies of the.. Cologne.. data and.. CERN.. data on the Archive.. ).. And if all of this doesn t serve to convince you that open bibliographic data is HERE NOW, the rumor mill tells us that the.. World Wide Web consortium.. is forming a working group on library bibliographic data and the semantic web, with at least one of its goals to help libraries participate in the.. Linked Open Data.. movement and become better integrated with other data on the web.. I have no doubt that there are exciting and rewarding times ahead for libraries..

Samuelson: Google Books is Not a Library.. October 13th, 2009 by brewster.. Amen.. (worthwhile).. Google Claims to be the Lone Defender of Orphans: Not lone, not defender.. October 7th, 2009 by brewster.. At a press conference that Google held today,.. Techcrunch.. reported these statements by Sergey Brin and Eric Schmidt.. They deserve correction.. Google Founder Sergey Brin said: [T]he companies that are making objections about out of print books are doing nothing for out of print books, MSFT and Amazon.. This is twisted at best.. There are around.. 400 objections to the settlement.. objecting to Google s treatment of out-of-print books companies, libraries and even countries.. And many of us are objecting because we have been working together for years on the mass scanning of out-of-print books and have worked to get books online for far longer than Google and Google s settlement could hurt our efforts.. A major part of our efforts have concentrated on changing the law so everyone would benefit.. The Internet Archive s effort to free orphan works (a name that I coined in the books context for when the rightsowner is unknown or not available to negotiate for use of the work), had been an active project for years before Google announced they were scanning library books.. As early as 2002 the Archive was participating in the Million Books project when we acquired a hundred thousand books for scanning.. Because many of these books wound up being orphans, their digitization was partial and significantly delayed.. Today, the Million Books project holds over 1.. 4 million books that have been scanned at public expense, but are not publicly viewable because of the lack of clarity on orphan works.. In March of 2004, the Internet Archive filed a.. suit.. in a Federal Court in an attempt to free the Orphan Works in a challenge of current U.. S.. copyright legislation.. Google announced their library scanning project in December 2004 therefore, they did not even publicly start until the Gordian Knot of orphan works had been a very public and ongoing problem for those of us already trying to make books available to the public.. Google s CEO Schmidt said the opponents should: propose an alternative to solve the problem.. There is an alternative, and they know it orphan works legislation that up until the last session of Congress had been working its way through the House and Senate.. It was not perfect, but was getting close to what we need.. Best yet, it passed one house at least until Google effectively sideswiped the process with their settlement proposal.. The settlement has been seen as solving the orphan books issue, which has served to enervate efforts to pass a bill.. If Google were to abandon its attempt to grab these books for its own private gain, then technology companies and libraries could speak with a strong voice, speaking in unison, working together to get proper legislation passed.. That is the alternative and Google could help, and I hope now does help, and stop hurting the process.. Lets free the orphans, not have them pass from their legal limbo into a life controlled by Google and its proposed Books Rights Registry.. Orphan Works and Mass Scanning Timeline:.. Million Books.. scanning partially halted based on this problem: 2002.. Public Domain Enhancement Act.. to deal with this introduced: June 2003.. Orphan Works complaint filed.. : March 2004.. Google library scanning.. was announced in December 2004.. Copyright Office.. starts formal inquiry.. into Orphan Works Jan 2005.. proposed legislation from them on Jan 2006.. Google sued..

Google Settlement announced.. Oct 2008.. 32 Comments.. At End of Act II: Are We Being Played for Fools OR Building an Enlightened Digital World?.. September 20th, 2009 by brewster.. The grand and dastardly scheme was to construct an organization to.. control/monetize the Orphans.. might they get away with it? It seems they might in fact everyone seems to be playing the role that was laid out for them by Google et al.. As seen in the.. today, they may be getting what they want: Laying out a path forward, the [Justice] department said some of its antitrust concerns could be mitigated by some mechanism by which Google’s competitors’ could gain comparable access to orphan works.. If so, the plan to control and monetize would be left in place.. If this happens then we are being played for fools in someone else s play.. And that will hurt access to books and book culture past, present, and future.. With the Justice Department objection, we are just where the Google+TradeLawyers may have hoped we would be.. The question now is: do we play the concluding Act III of this saga according to their script or do we build a competitive and rich digital world?.. Please grant me a moment to explain.. Act I: Google makes secret agreements with libraries to scan all books, calls it search , is.. greeted as a savior.. When the details come out and are.. quite dark.. , it is too late as people remember it as a good thing.. Act II: Google is sued (surprise!) and secretly negotiates for maximum rights with as small a number of lawyers as possible.. Having it be a class action is the stroke of genius the parties get to rewrite copyright law.. Google+TradeLawyers make a backroom deal Google would get to solely control the out-of-print book world (most of the books of the 20th century) and the lawyers from the Authors Guild and the AAP would share tens of millions of dollars.. Seems like a tidy deal.. But there are two troubles copyright and anti-trust.. They need an act of Congress or the Justice Department to bless their cabal.. So where are we? They drafted a settlement that is completely self-serving, while short-changing authors, publishers, libraries, other countries, and Internet companies (if you don t believe me, please read the words of.. hundreds of well-reasoned objections.. to the suit).. The Justice Department did the right thing to.. cry anti-trust foul.. about the.. *two* monopolies.. that are proposed: Google and the Books Rights Registry.. But interestingly, Google could only make a settlement where they were the only beneficiary because this was done as a class-action suit.. This bizarre circumstance means they could not offer their protection to any others because the others were not party to the suit and they wanted a small room to negotiate in you can only commit others with a law or judicial approval.. So they set out to allow their monopoly to be blown and still rule the day.. Yes, they seem to have set this up so that they win if the Justice Department objected and said anyone has to be able to get the deal that you got.. (This idea of non-exclusive access is consistent with the rhetoric that Google has been slathering on the media for the last several months.. ) And then, voila, Google would fall back on the 2nd tier monopoly, the Books Rights Registry, to allow them to control all out-of-print books.. Justice would then look like they got something, when in fact, they did not.. Not following me? Sorry, but let me take another shot.. Let s say the Justice Department says anyone else should be able to do what Google has just negotiated for itself and allows the judge to approve this complicated mess-of-a-settlement or goes  ...   publish millions of orphan works, with a release from legal liability for copyright infringement.. Google claims that anyone can scan these books but no one else has the same legal protections that Google has.. Would the parties to the settlement amend the settlement to extend legal liability indemnification to any and all digitizers of orphan works? If not, why not leave orphans out of the settlement and compel a legislative solution instead of striking a private deal in a District Court?.. The Book Rights Registry Monopoly: The settlement creates what is effectively a monopoly in the Book Rights Registry.. The Books Rights Registry will be a privately-held, privately-administered exclusive marketplace where digitized books are priced.. Why should this function be handed over to a monopoly controlled through the Authors Guild and AAP? Why can’t there be an open framework that allows for more than one registry – giving rights holders and others a choice? For domain names, consumers and businesses have a choice of where to register a domain name – creating competition.. Would Google and its monopoly partners endorse an open registry system?.. Privacy: Despite repeated requests, Google has declined to give any details about what privacy controls it would put in place on its Book Search product.. Will Google track the books that we are reading and make this information available to sell advertising against it? Will Google refuse to share information with the government about what books people are reading, as libraries routinely do? Will Google even publish a robust privacy policy on its Book Search product before the settlement issue is resolved?.. More and more people are recognizing the Google Book Settlement for what it really is — an insider deal cut between powerful, private interests that creates a profit-making monopoly over the greatest source of our culture’s common knowledge.. We urge everyone who cares about books to come to their rescue.. Google Book Search.. 23 Comments.. Making Books Apparent.. July 17th, 2009 by peter.. MAKING BOOKS APPARENT.. A workshop sponsored by the Internet Archive*.. October 19-20, Fort Mason.. San Francisco, California.. *.. (By invitation –only).. The Internet Archive, in conjunction with its partners,.. O’Reilly Media.. Threepress.. Book Oven.. Feedbooks.. OLPC.. , and others, will highlight the development of an open platform for electronic books at a workshop for developers and early implementers.. Making Books Apparent will introduce the Archive’s Bookserver Project, on-going work on the.. OPDS.. Catalog specification and enhancements to the.. Open Library.. , the largest editable library on the web.. The meeting will provide an opportunity to demonstrate and enhance interoperability through collaborative development at an on-site hackfest.. BOOKSERVER.. The Bookserver Project enables readers to discover, acquire, and read books.. Using a family of existing and new open standards (e.. g.. , OPDS Catalogs), open formats (e.. , EPUB), and open data, Bookserver defines a distributed, web-based approach to allow content creators to publish catalogs of their available works; for customers to find titles from many different publishers and libraries; and for readers to get content onto a wide range of devices.. The catalog format enables search engines to serve as a gateway for basic information about books; allows the information provided by publishers, bookstores, and libraries to be combined and enriched by aggregators such as Internet Archive s Open Library, Amazon, or Ingram; and encourages bloggers, niche portals, and others to make their own good reads sourced from across the book industry.. Publishers, libraries, and reading system developers will demonstrate early Bookserver implementations.. Exploration into alternative lending and vending models will also be highlighted.. OPEN LIBRARY.. The largest open source library on the web, Open Library will showcase new interfaces that enable the easy upload of new catalog data into Open Library, with a particular focus on small collections, both institutional and personal.. The Open Library team will demonstrate new collection development services, and a refreshed user interface that will make Open Library a compelling site for the enrichment of book information online, supporting the goal of a web page for every book ever published.. LOCATION.. Fort Mason Center, San Francisco CA.. DATE.. October 19-20, 2009.. MORE INFORMATION.. Please contact peter at archive org.. 5 Comments.. Achievements for Humanity.. July 5th, 2009 by internetarchive.. The Open Content Alliance includes hundreds of member libraries who are stretching their limited resources in order to digitize their public domain holdings and to make them available with no restrictions whatsoever.. So it was surprising to read recently in a New York Times.. article.. that Google s leadership thinks that they have been alone in the ambitious scanning of books.. The article quotes Sergey Brin as saying:.. I didn t see anyone lining up to scan books when we did it, or even now.. Some of them are motivated by near-term business disputes, and they don t see this as an achievement for humanity.. Well, true, the Internet Archive wasn t exactly lining up to scan books when Google did:.. we were scanning books long before.. We started with our sourcing technology and a donation of 100,000 books to the Million Books Project in 2002.. This involvement led to the development of our University of Toronto scanning center in 2004, months before Google publicly launched its Library Project.. We now have 19 scanning centers in 5 countries scanning 1,000 public domain books a day without restriction.. And even before our efforts began, Project Gutenberg and others were scanning and posting freely.. Like Brin, we see the marvelous work done by the University of Toronto and other partner institutions as an achievement for humanity.. And, further, we believe that the principles of the OCA truly open content and truly broad access present an important alternative to the impressive but closed, proprietary, and now monopolistic model advanced by Google.. -brewster.. New Archive Book Reader.. June 9th, 2009 by internetarchive.. We ve got a new release of our book reader, which we ve been working on for the past few months.. In addition to a new theme and user interface, the reader has the following special features:.. the reader includes unique (and simple to understand) URLs for each page, which update as you move through a book..

Cornell Removes Restrictions on Public Domain.. May 18th, 2009 by internetarchive.. We welcome the news that last week Cornell University Library.. removed all restrictions on its digital public domain holdings.. It did so in conjunction with a donation of more than 70,000 digitized public domain books to the Internet Archive.. As these books are processed, they will appear on archive.. Cornell has removed restrictions not only on non-commercial use but commercial use as well.. University Librarian Anne Kenney explains: We decided it was more important to encourage the use of the public domain materials in our holdings than to impose roadblocks.. We applaud Cornell for this move and hope that others will be inspired by its leadership in this vital area.. The public domain belongs to everyone and to no one.. Attempts to restrict it promise to have a chilling effect on the collective digital library we are trying to build.. Hats off to Cornell!.. digital libraries.. public domain..
