The digital heritage (e.g. public domain books or works) is imported in Google books due to a Google agreement with various university and public libraries in the US. The idea looks very nice (at least on the paper) in order to provide a large access to public domain works. But I was very surprise by the move of public domain to a kind of non-free license forbidding the commercial use (cf. blog:2006-09-06 Google Books Killing Public Domain). Digging more into the Google books web service, I have a lot of question regarding the service and would like to find answer in order to better understand the service and its implication.
