Although it’s been hung up in the courts, there appears to be some forward momentum towards Google finishing its project to digitize all the world’s libraries.

The project hit a halt in 2005 when publishers, authors and others disagreed over Google’s policies regarding abandoned, copyrighted works.

The judge in the case supports Google’s efforts to digitize 100 million+ books (there are 15 million already scanned).  Having digital books online provides more access to great information to society at large, which can only help.
