Thread: Roy misstates the facts yet again

  1. Roy misstates the facts yet again


    There's a long discussion with Brewster Kahle of the Open Content
    Alliance on this week's TWiT podcast, where (among other things), he
    discusses scanning of books at libraries, and Microsoft's recent exit
    from that effort.

    In what will come as a great unsurprise to many here, it turns out how
    Roy reported this was misleading.

    Both Microsoft and Google have arrangements with the libraries that
    specify what rights the libraries get to the scanned material.
    Microsoft's agreement is much less restrictive. (He went so far as to
    say Google is trying to lock up public domain material, and praised
    Microsoft for trying to make the material more widely available).

    Furthermore, when Microsoft cancelled their participation, they released
    the libraries from the agreements, turning over all rights to the
    libraries. They also donated all of the scanning equipment, so the
    libraries can continue the work.

    Roy Schestowitz lying?
    Never!
    How could that possibly happen?
    Roy Schestowitz is such a solid Linux citizen and he would never consider
    misrepresenting the facts....

    Yea right....

    Roy Schestowitz has proven once again that he is a self serving, spamming
    liar who has to keep his masters happy with post count.
