Microsoft puts copyrighted books online
More news about the publishing industry. There's a report in Computerworld that Microsoft is going to include copyrighted books in its Live Search Books service. They have gotten permission for the inclusion of all the copyrighted books in order to avoid battling over copyright issues with authors and publishers. Live Search Books will index "tens of thousands" of copyrighted books from publishers including McGraw-Hill Companies, Simon & Schuster and Yale University Press.
