Presenteie o mundo com o seu livro favorito

POSTADO POR: admin ter, 24 de setembro de 2013

Que tal se juntar a outros fãs de livros para comprar direitos autorais e tornar o acesso a eles grátis? Foi com essa ideia ousada que nasceu o, um serviço de crowdfunding para transformar títulos protegidos em ebooks creative commons.
Lançado em maio do ano passado, o site foi criado para ajudar leitores apaixonados a “descolar” (traduzindo o nome do site) os livros do controle das editoras para ter acesso a obras antigas, esgotadas ou que editoras não se interessem mais em publicar. Mas os autores não saem perdendo com isso! O pagamento aos criadores é feito por meio do financiamento coletivo – e as pessoas que quiserem participar podem doar qualquer quantia.
Se o valor estipulado pelo direito do livro for alcançado, a obra ganhará uma versão em ebook, sob uma licença creative commons. Isso significa que qualquer pessoa pode ler, baixar e compartilhar o ebook livre e legalmente. “Significa dar ao mundo o seu livro favorito”, acreditam os criadores do serviço. Inspirador, não?
O primeiro sucesso da plataforma foi disponibilizar, de graça e com novos recursos, a obra Literatura Oral na África, de Ruth H. Finnegan. Na ocasião, em agosto de 2012, a autora declarou estar maravilhada com a possibilidade de a pesquisa ser lida livremente no continente estudado. Outros livros também foram “descolados” pelo site, como:
– O Terceiro Despertar, de Dennis Weiser;
– Então Você Quer Ser Bibliotecário, de Lauren Pressley;
– Alimentando a Cidade, de Sara Roncaglia, e
– Open Access eBooks, de E.S. Hellman.
Entre os livros mais desejados pelos usuários do site estão O Guia do Mochileiro das Galáxias, de Douglas Adams, Uma Breve História do Tempo, de Stephen Hawking, e Revolução dos Bichos, de George Orwell. Quais são os seus livros favoritos que você gostaria que fossem “descolados”? Compartilhe com a gente nos comentários!
