From the site:
Gluejar is building a place for individuals and institutions to join together to liberate specific ebooks and other types of digital content by paying rights holders to re-license their works under Creative Commons licenses.
What does this mean?
- Book-lovers and libraries everywhere can join together to set books free.
- Authors and publishers get the compensation they deserve.
- Books that are out of print, not available as ebooks, or otherwise hard to enjoy will be available for everyone to read, share, learn from, and love — freely and legally.
