Google To Let Consumers Download Public Domain Books

Google has launched another book service, though this one won’t generate any copyright issues: its new service Google Books lets consumers download and print free of charge classic novels and many other, more obscure books that are in the public domain.
Using Google’s Book Search service, titles like Dante’s “Inferno” and Aesop’s “Fables” will be available for download as PDF files. Up to now, the service only allowed people to read the out-of-copyright books online. Example here.
