I've been playing around with Google Docs (again, sorry) and online OCR and was wondering what it would take to 'republish' a book under Google Sites on the mises.com account?
So, here's my plan. Run the book or article pdf through the OCR(which is amazingly good BTW), split it into chapters and clean it up a bit (which really only involves changing a "<<PAGE-DIVIDER>>" to a "[p. 1]", adding paragraph breaks and an occasional mis-interpreted word).
Since Google Sites is basically a wiki this could be a collaborative effort but I believe that you need to be a mises.com member to be able to edit.
I've tested it with The Case Against the Fed and one article from the first issue of The Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics but figured I'd ask before attempting to set up an experimental Google Site so mises.org doesn't have to send a DMCA takedown notice to mises.com if there were copyright issues.
On the two you mentioned, there is no problem because "we own the copyright," as they say.
