Access, freedom of expression and limits to censorship: don’t just rely on Google’s assurances

Nach seiner euphorischen BegrüÃ?ung gestern zitiert Jon Udell heute vorsichtig skeptische Ã?berlegungen zum Thema Google Library:

The public has a big interest in making sure that no one business has a chokehold on the flow of human knowledge. As long as Google’s amazing project puts more knowledge in more hands and heads, who could object? But in this area, taking the long view is not just smart – it’s ethically essential. So as details of Google’s project emerge, it will be important not just to rely on Google’s assurances but to keep an eye out for public guarantees of access, freedom of expression and limits to censorship.

Wer könnte Scott Rosenberg da widersprechen?
