Norway is Digitizing All Books, And Making Them Free For Its Citizens | FilmsForAction.org

Norway is well on its way to digitizing every book in its National Library and making them all free to access for any Norwegian citizen. That means hundreds of thousands of books will be available to anyone accessing the collection online with a Norwegian IP address.

 

According to the National Library, “all published content, in all media” is being digitized, which includes “material dating from the Middle Ages up to the current day.” 

 

The digitization of the library collection began in 2006 and is expected to take 20 to 30 years, with an end goal of the mid-2020s. The Norwegian Legal Deposit Act requires everything published in the country be deposited in the National Library’s collections, which means everything published in Norway will eventually be uploaded to the digital archives. According to the library’s website, “several terabytes of data” flow into the archives each day, ranging from books to handwritten documents to audio files. 

 

The reasons the National Library gives for digitization are quite noble. “Users should be able to enjoy access to a large variety of digital content from wherever they are located, and whenever they want,” it says on its website. It’s digitizing what it calls “the nation’s collective memory” and will “safeguard the collection for future generations.”

Apple objects to e-book ruling monitor | The Hill Blog

Apple is repeating its objections to a court-appointed antitrust monitor.

 

Last year, Judge Denise Cote — of the U.S. District Court in Manhattan — found Apple guilty of conspiring with book publishers to fix prices of e-books. As a part of the company’s punishment, Apple was directed to allow a court-appointed antitrust monitor to continually examine the company’s compliance with antitrust laws and the court’s order.

 

In court documents filed Tuesday, Apple repeated previous accusations that the monitor — Michael Bromwich, former offshore drilling advisor for the Obama administration — has overstepped his authority as designated by the court.

 

Bromwich “has repeatedly demanded interviews with Apple’s senior executives and board members who have no role in the day-to-day operation of the business unit at issue or in the development of Apple’s antitrust compliance policies and training programs,” the company told District Judge Denise Cote.

 

The company said Bromwich views “himself as unconstrained by the federal rules governing discovery and other matters” and acts “like an independent prosecutor.”

 

Apple said it objected to Bromwich’s attempts to access the company’s employees without a lawyer present, which “unjustifiably risks disclosure of privileged and confidential information.”

 

Bromwich has accused the company of keeping him from accessing the necessary people to conduct his compliance review.
