BiblioBazaar is, with Nabu Press,[1] an imprint of the historical reprints publisher BiblioLife, which is based in Charleston, South Carolina and owned by BiblioLabs LLC.[2]

BiblioBazaar produced, in printable electronic form, 272,930 titles in 2009, although these were used by means of an automated computerized process, using scanned text and generic stock photography for the covers. They see themselves less as publishers than as a software company.[3][4][5]

Bibliobazaar is a scam that appropriates intellectual property to itself that has fallen out of copyright, thereby perpetuating the copyright but without reimbursing the original authors or publishers. Rather than serve the public, Bibliobazaar restricts access to information that otherwise might be freely available. Online document servers such as Google Books will not provide access to archival texts that have been recopyrighted by Bibliobazaar.
