Ungluing eBooks

I came across the following post titled Ungluing eBooks~creative commons licensed eBooks at the no shelf required blog and immediately had to pay a visit to the Gluejar site.

I have reproduced a section from How it works from Gluejar below:

“Anyone will be able to kick off a pledge drive for a favorite book. Gluejar will work with rightsholders to determine a good price, and anyone can contribute toward meeting it. When the goal is met, rightsholders will be paid in exchange for making their works available under a Creative Commons license. The book becomes free for everyone to read and share.”

How exciting! I’m subscribing as I want to know the moment the ungluing begins.

This article titled ‘Free Culture’ advocate may pay a high price. published in the New York Times indicates that this may not be the case anymore.
