It’s really sad because a lot of really great books get lost not because nobody wants them but because people with lots of money who claim they have the rights are stopping people who have the rights from actually doing things. We hope to help these people down the road.

The lawyer for Singularity & Co., “the Brooklyn bookshop saving out-of-print sci-fi, one e-book at a time.” A heartening story of one-at-a-time rediscovery of potentially orphaned works. OTOH, I’m disheartened by the story they tell about the difficulty they had scanning an out-of-copyright book that was held in several university collections.
