New postPosted: Sun May 19, 2013 5:54 pm 

I have a main problem with:

"We also ask that you:
+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for
personal, non-commercial purposes."

They are from the public domain, and made easier to read... no sharing with others for commercial (profit?) or use? Then I would have to find a non google version of a free scanned public domain book?

Am I allowed to share with others?

I also found out that html format books can be better in some cases because you can change the font and some are easier to read... They could use ocr font-specific technology to scan and convert the PDFs or use a text version of the book to convert it
