Chirac to demand EU response to Google

follow-up on this: [webmasterworld.com...]


Jacques Chirac, the French President, is to propose a European-wide digitisation of European libraries to rival Google Print later this year

Just send over the scanned data.. Jacques .. and I'm sure any search engine would be happy to OCR & index all library books, no matter what language..

It would just help if someone organised, paid and authorised it...

So, wrong accusation, but good initiative..

I've never seen a country so insecure about their culture that they have to lash out like this. I'm not just talking about today's article. They declared war on Google and Google doesn't give a hoot.

seems to be gathering momentum...


The proposal has the backing of 19 important European libraries, not only from the signatory countries. According to initial estimate the cost of the operation would be around 200 million euros for the digitalisation of three million books.
