copyright on the OCR'd digital content also exists
Uhm... What country are you in? The US doesn't recognize "sweat of the brow" copyright or UK-style stylistic copyright. I've forgotten the correct term. It's a special category for when you reprint pre-existing material or put it into a new medium. The text itself doesn't regain a lost copyright, but people can't come along and photograph your book.

Hee. I thought I was kidding in that neighboring thread when I said "all of Europe except Hungary". (Yes, I looked up the IP.) I'll bet most people would have assumed you planned the other way around: allow the rest of the continent but block Hungary :)
