Scribd: Good or Bad?

April 14, 2007

Is this a YouTube of pirated books? Scribd allows you to share any document online.

Scribd is a free online library where anyone can upload. Use our embeddable PDF player to publish and view documents right in your web browser.

That seems a good idea since you now can put a pdf viewer in your blog or web page just like embedded a YouTube video clip. Until you look into what people are uploading. Many uploaded documents are copy-righted.

Anyone can print the document and download it in different formats, e.g. pdf, Word or plain text. Just wonder how long it takes to get attention from these big publishing companies.
