Google Books Will be Released After 7 Years

The commission of the European Union education and culture ruled on Monday that all printed material scanned by Google should be freely available for commercial use after a period of seven years. The measure aims to “encourage the emergence of new companies that help to preserve the European cultural heritage.”

“We believe there is a lot of opportunities for new competitors manage to take on Google,” said Maurice C. Levy, CEO of agency advertising Publisys and board member responsible for the decision. For the executive, the web giant has been “key role” in the cultural materials scanning process as books, paintings, maps, films or photos, but “it is not healthy that there is only one competitor in this field.”

According to Androulla Vassilou, commissioner for education and culture, the seven -year period was determined after interviews with experts “determined the time required for the company to recover the investment made ​​in the digitalization of the material” and that the measure had the support of Commissioner digital issues, Neelie Kroes. During this period of preferential use, Google will have exclusivity on the material available on the network, on sites like Google Books Library Project.

Al Verney, web giant’s spokesman, said in an interview with New York Times that initially his company wanted the exclusivity period was 15 years, and his short extension “enter the debate about the importance of preserving heritage cultural and popularize their access.”

The publication notes that other members of the EU education and culture committee also used the meeting to call for increased Europeana’s budget, non-profit portal also aims to digitize books, photographs, maps, films and music and puts them in network. The website states that currently has 15 million items on the web, but the number “is a small fraction on the contents of all libraries of the continent.” “With the money needed for paving only 100km of roads, it can scan 15% of this collection,” said the commission.
