From Ameriucan Libraries:
In January Unglue.It, a website that hopes to “unglue” ebook versions of copyrighted books through crowdfunding, was released in alpha. The site runs crowdfunding campaigns to raise money for specific, already-published books. When the funding goal set by the rights holders is reached, an electronic edition will be issued with a Creative Commons BY-NC-ND license, which makes the edition free and legal for everyone to read, copy, and share. While live funding campaigns are not running in the alpha phase, most of the other features of the site are, including searching for books, adding them to your wish list, and personalizing your user profile work.
