Yahoo to Digitize Public Domain Materials

"Yahoo, The Internet Archive and several other organizations announced the formation of the Open Content Alliance (OCA) to make thousands of books, multimedia files and other materials freely searchable and accessible online.

Kahle, founder of The Internet Archive, said today’s announcement is a ‘call for open participation in the Open Content Alliance.’ In other
words, the group would love to see other organizations (libraries,
publishers, archives, etc.) join the group."
