* TPP: Getting involved

Have you heard of the Trans-Pacific Partnership?  Most people haven't.
Yet, this is one of the most important international treaties that may
have a large impact on your life, in the near future.

Among other things, the TPP will serve to again halt progression of
the Public Domain, by locking up copyrighted works for another
extended period.  In the 20th century in the United States, copyright
terms were extended an astounding 14 times.  At Project Gutenberg, we
knew there would be another extension planned before the current one
reaches its 20th anniversary in 2018, and the TPP is it.

Rather than just addressing the United States, the TPP will be,
effectively, worldwide.  The unduly long copyright terms of the US
will become even longer, and copyright terms elsewhere in the world
will be extended in the interest of global "regularization."

Please learn more, and consider signing up at "Our Fair Deal," along
with Project Gutenberg, The Electronic Frontier Foundation, The
Internet Archive, and Public Knowledge.

* Our first eBook in Farsi

Our first eBook in the Farsi language is now available:

  Five Selected Short Stories, by D.H. Lawrence
  www.gutenberg.org/etext/46740

We are grateful to Siaavash Malekei for donating this translation
to the public domain, and making it available to Project Gutenberg.


* CD/DVD ISO maker and MARC records

As mentioned in our previous newsletter, the custom CD/DVD ISO maker
is now back online.  This is a way to make your own collection of
Project Gutenberg items, suitable for copying to your computer and
sharing with others.  You can select the format (such as HTML or
epub), language, and specific eBooks you want.

Visit http://pgiso.pglaf.org to get started.  This service is mainly
directed at people who have good network bandwidth, and are
comfortable working with relatively large files with complex formats.


* Trouble for Amazon Kindle users

A service change in how Amazon provides Internet access to Kindle
users has left some users blocked due to Project Gutenberg's inability
to service anonymous and automated requests.  We apologize that there
is not a lot we can do to fix this, other than to recommend
alternate devices, alternate methods to connect to www.gutenberg.org,
and the use of our mirrors.

See our "mobile reader how-to" for more information.  Alternate
download destinations are listed on eBook "Download" pages.


* Roboting/harvesting advice

Please see our robot guidelines at www.gutenberg.org if you would
like to download large quantities of material from Project Gutenberg.

There are many ways of doing this that don't trigger our anti-robot
mechanism.  One is the ISO maker mentioned above.  Another is to use
rsync.  Still another is to use one of our mirror sites.  Send us an
email (see our "Contact Us" link) if you want to access a large number
of eBooks, and are having trouble.


* Thank you for your donations!

In 2014 so far, we have received over 2700 donations, from 45
countries.  Many of these donations are just $1!  We use these
donations to support our many volunteers, and keep our systems
running.  To learn more, visit www.gutenberg.org/donate

* Copyright news from Canada

Via Project Gutenberg of Canada's Mark Akrigg, this is a follow-up to
a previous article on the topic.


WHAT AMERICANS (AND OTHERS) CAN DO TO FIGHT THE TRANS-PACIFIC
PARTNERSHIP

In May's newsletter, Greg Newby was kind enough to post an item I had
written on the dangers posed by the Trans-Pacific Partnership "free
trade" negotiations:

  http://lists.pglaf.org/pipermail/gmonthly/2013/000095.html

The TPP would force copyright extensions in Canada and New Zealand.
But it is an attack on Americans as well. For example, it would make
it impossible to roll back the 20-year copyright extensions passed by
the U.S. Congress in 1998 under shocking circumstances.

By the time you read this, yet another round of closed negotiation
will have taken place in Lima, Peru from May 15-24th.  It's unlikely
that you will see any report of this in the media.  So the secret
attack on your rights will continue -- unless you take quick and easy
action to tell your government that they are there to serve the
public, not private interests!


HOW TO TAKE ACTION IN NO TIME AT ALL

The TPP is an attack on the rights of Americans, and Americans are in
the best position to stop the attack.  In no time at all you can send
a message to Congress.  Go to the following Electronic Frontier
Foundation page to learn more about how the TPP harms America, and
click on the red TAKE ACTION button to send a message to Congress:

  https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2013/04/tpp-biggest-global-threat-internet-acta

If you live outside the United States, sign the Stop the Trap petition
-- Americans can also sign it!

  http://stopthetrap.net/


HOW TO TAKE EVEN MORE EFFECTIVE ACTION IN VERY LITTLE TIME

The petitions are excellent, but do not focus on copyright terms,
which are of special interest to supporters of Project Gutenberg.  But
it's easy to do just a little bit more: this "little bit" can actually
be enormously effective.  Remember how the one-day Wikipedia blackout
and individual phone calls and emails completely stopped a government
attack on the rights of internet users.  Individual actions count.

In the United States, simply write and/or call your Member of Congress
and Senator telling them that for the United States to use the TPP to
extend copyright durations is an attack on the rights of the citizens
of other countries, and in complete conflict with the principles of
equity and respect for others upon which the United States was
founded.  And tell them that Congress's 1998 20-year copyright
extension was an illegitimate confiscation of the public domain, and
should be repealed immediately, rather than exported to other
countries.

In Canada and New Zealand, contact your Member of Parliament to say
that they must not allow copyright extensions to be forced on your
country by a secret international treaty.  In other TPP countries
(such as Australia and Mexico), tell your elected representatives that
copyright terms should be as short as possible, and should never be
dictated by foreign governments and corporations.

This is a battle that we can win!

to snag some of his favorites at the Michael Hart Estate Book
Sale. After donating thousands of books to archive.org and thousands
to Goodwill, the Estate still has thousands of incredible books
waiting for you. They vary from his favorite sci-fi dating back to the
fifties, to over a dozen copies of Bridges of Madison County, and more
than enough Vonnegut. No early birds, no dealers, and prices will be
by whim. :)   

http://mhbooksale.wordpress.com/ will be updated through the week. The
sale will be held at 405 West Elm Street, Urbana, IL, 61801, on

Thanks for these updates go to Project Gutenberg whitewasher Al

of great literature.


** Thanks!

We received this email message at Project Gutenberg:

"I cannot properly express my gratitude and thanks to everyone at
Project Gutenberg. To yourself, the staff, including the people who
empty the trash bins, thank you.... thank you... thank you.

  You see, I'm dying of an inoperable brain tumor. Doctors tell me I
have a few months at most. While meandering around the internet, I
stumbled across the Tarzan series, authored by Edgar Rice Burroughs,
which your organization has made available in e-books. These are
absolutely the favorite books of my childhood. I haven't read them in
fifty years. Reading these books again after so many years brings an
enjoyment I thought I'd never feel again. To many, this may sound
trivial, but following the adventures of 'The Lord of the Jungle,'
which I loved so much as a child, allows me a few hours every day to
escape the harsh realities of life."


** A new mirror site in Bulgaria

Welcome to our newest Project Gutenberg mirror site, sponsored by
e-book Ltd. of Sofia, Bulgaria.  They are "the first and the most
famous Bulgarian company specialized in the domain of e-book devices
and content.  Our goal is to popularize ebooks reading and to bring

mirror of Project Gutenberg."

eBooks: 2010 – A UNESCO atlas for endangered languages

In 2010, UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) launched a free Interactive Atlas of the World’s Languages in Danger.

The online edition is a complement of the print edition (3rd edition, 2010), edited by Christopher Moseley, and available in English, French and Spanish, with previous editions in 1996 and 2001.

2,473 languages were listed on 25 July 2011, with a search engine by country and area, language name, number of speakers from/to, vitality and ISO 639-3 code.

The language names have been indicated in English, French and Spanish transcriptions. Alternate names (spelling variants, dialects or names in non-Roman scripts) are also provided. Continue reading eBooks: 2010 – A UNESCO atlas for endangered languages

eBooks: 2009 – 6,909 living languages in the Ethnologue

6,909 living languages were cataloged in the 16th edition (2009) of “The Ethnologue: Languages of the World”, an encyclopedic reference work freely available on the web since 1996, with a print book for sale.

As stated by Barbara Grimes, its editor from 1971 to 2000, the Ethnologue is “a catalog of the languages of the world, with information about where they are spoken, an estimate of the number of speakers, what language family they are in, alternate names, names of dialects, other socio-linguistic and demographic information, dates of published Bibles, a name index, a language family index, and language maps.” (NEF Interview)

A core team of researchers in Dallas, Texas, has been helped by thousands of linguists gathering and checking information worldwide. A new edition of the Ethnologue is published approximately every four years.

The Ethnologue has been an active research project since 1950. It was founded by Richard Pittman as a catalog of minority languages, to share information on language development needs around the world with his colleagues at SIL International and other language researchers.

eBooks: 2000 – The web portal yourDictionary

Five years before co-founding yourDictionary.com in February 2000, as the portal for all languages without any exception, Robert Beard created the website A Web of Online Dictionaries (WOD) in 1995.

Robert Beard was a language teacher at Bucknell University, in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. In September 1998, his website provided an index of 800 online dictionaries in 150 languages, as well as sections for multilingual dictionaries, specialized English dictionaries, thesauri and other vocabulary aids, language identifiers and guessers, an index of dictionary indices, the “Web of Online Grammars”, and the “Web of Linguistic Fun”, i.e. linguistics for non-specialists.

Robert Beard wrote in September 1998: “There was an initial fear that the web posed a threat to multilingualism on the web, since HTML and other programming languages are based on English and since there are simply more websites in English than any other language. However, my websites indicate that multilingualism is very much alive and the web may, in fact, serve as a vehicle for preserving many endangered languages. I now have links to dictionaries in 150 languages and grammars of 65 languages. Moreover, the new attention paid by browser developers to the different languages of the world will encourage even more websites in different languages.” (NEF Interview) Continue reading eBooks: 2000 – The web portal yourDictionary

Project Gutenberg and Languages

Project Gutenberg has been a visionary project launched by Michael Hart in July 1971 to create free electronic versions of literary works and disseminate them worldwide. The project got its first boost with the invention of the web in 1990, and its second boost with the creation of Distributed Proofreaders in 2000, to help digitizing books from public domain. In 2010, there are Project Gutenberg websites in the U.S., in Australia, in Europe, and in Canada, with more websites to come in other countries.

1990-94

Initially, the ebooks were mostly in English. As Project Gutenberg was launched from the University of Illinois, with the help of English-speaking volunteers, its first goal has been to provide ebooks to the English-language community, that is to say 95% of internet users in the early 1990s. (Non-English-speaking users reached 50% in summer 2000, with a percentage steadily growing ever since.)

Project Gutenberg was also inspiring other digital libraries elsewhere. Projekt Runeberg, for classic Nordic literature, and Projekt Gutenberg-DE, for classic German literature, started respectively in 1992 and 1994.

An Interview with Michael Hart

I recently had the privilege of interviewing Michael Hart, former editor and founder of Project Gutenberg. In our interview, Michael discusses the future of PG, and looks back on how it has evolved through changing times.

So why are you passing the editor torch?

This isn’t the first time. It’s mostly to get PG used to not depending on me so much. I have tried as hard as I dare, not to be a central figure by voicing my own opinions other than to balance others. I don’t really mind doing the Newsletter, but I like to see more other points of view, styles, perspectives, interest, etc.

Project Gutenberg has had a long and tumultuous road. How do you feel the face of PG has changed or evolved through the years?

Believe it or not, I never thought of it as tumultuous. Yes, there were a few years of hard times, but that’s my life’s story, but since I never let us get addicted to money it never made a difference when there wasn’t any. Continue reading An Interview with Michael Hart

New Goal Set for Project Gutenberg: One Billion Readers

The first goal of Project Gutenberg was simply to reach totals of estimated audiences of 1.5% of the world population, or the total of 100 million people.

With the advent of cell phone [mobile phone] access we are now setting our goal at 15% of the world population or 1 billion.

Given that there are approximately 4.5 billion cell phones now in service around the world, that means we would have to reach just over 1/5 of all cell phone users to accomplish this.

Possible. . .but not likely unless we make it extremely easy!

To this end we will be emphasizing eBook reader programs for a wide range of cell phones.

Given the estimated 4.5 billion cell phones that we could make eBooks for today, presuming they can all display plain eBooks, and the extremely slow rise in Kindle sales as compared to the iPod, iPhone, Blackberry Curve, and all the others, we should be able to reach more readers than Kindle and Sony combined if we just reach one cell phone user out of a thousand. This has to include many more languages than English, of course, so our effort also has to be multi-lingual, if we are to reach anyone beyond the number of people comfortable enough with English to read our eBooks on their cell phones.

As many of you know, we already have well over a thousand book titles in French, followed by lesser numbers in German and the other more popular languages, but not nearly enough to really, sincerely, say we are offering a library in these languages.

Once we complete a survey of our Top Ten languages we are down to under 50 books per language. . .it’s a start, only a start.
