Yahoo! To Launch Digitization Project to Rival Google's

Yahoo! announced it will launch a library-digitization project known as the Open Content Alliance in cooperation with the Internet Archive, the University of California, the University of Toronto and others. The idea is to digitize books in archives around the world and make them searchable through any Web search engine and downloadable for free.

Unlike Google's controversial and much challenged digitization efforts, Yahoo! claims that it will scan and digitize only texts in the public domain, except where the copyright holder has expressly given permission.
