Web site to amplify Google book debate

May 27, 2009 8:03:38 AM PDT
A new Web site aims to become the Internet's hub for the debate over Google's plans to assemble of vast Internet library of books. SharedBook is setting up Web site so the supporters and opponents of Google's digital book project can more easily post their opinions about a legal settlement that will help fulfill or possibly derail the Internet search leader's ambitions.

The site, www.gbs.sharedbook.com, is set to debut Thursday.

Using SharedBook's annotation tools, anyone will be able to comment on the complex settlement and other key court documents in a class-action lawsuit filed four years ago by authors and publishers.

New York-based SharedBook plans to turn the discussion into a book.
