Keep reading / watching major media's headline news it has all relevant information for the sheeple of the world. If the public has access to credible information for free, it will be the fall of civilization! Bad Google!

they probably do profit from this some way otherwise why would they waste the time and money to scan the books?

building up an archive for when they finlay open up an ebook store?
putting ads on the sides of books that have fallen into public domain?

[citation][nom]zeratul600[/nom]america why everything that its good always got some legal actions on it in order to prevent it?[/citation]

Because unauthorized scanning of books is illegal. This has been established for a long, long time.
