Conceived[edit]

Was it really conceived in response to the closed nature of google's book search and is it aim really to keep books in the public domain or just to blunt a potential competitive advantage and PR gain by google?Logicnazi 22:19, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

In the abscence of any response I'm editing the page to say things a bit more neutrally. Logicnazi 16:18, 23 September 2007 (UTC)
No, it was not created in direct response to the Google Settlement.

Microsoft[edit]

Now that MSN has stopped its scanning efforts, is it still a member of the OCA? Fothergill Volkensniff IV (talk) 12:34, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

To answer my own question, the OCA website doesn't list "members", rather just "contributors" (past and present). Updated article accordingly. Fothergill Volkensniff IV (talk) 12:37, 26 June 2008 (UTC)


Open Book Alliance[edit]

Open Book Alliance should not redirect here. They are different groups, with diffferent purposes. OBA is a direct response to the Google Settlement and the OCA is not.

A new page for OBA should be created.
