Examining the Google Book Digitization Project
The Washington Post has a fascinating in-depth article that focuses on the the Google Book digitization project. The article recounts the history of how the project was conceived, where it is currently, and where it will ultimately lead if copyright issues don't get in the way. The arguments for and against scanning from that perspective are laid out fairly well in the text.
An ironic note, Microsoft's Paul Allen may have been an inspiration that pushed the project along.
