EU wants to go full-throttle

Breaking news from Library Journal says:

In a meeting of European Union (EU) culture ministers in Paris last week, members strongly backed a plan to create a huge digital library from European library collections, a rival to Google’s plan to digitize books from four libraries in the United States and one in the United Kingdom.

Part of the reasons given for diving into this are the fears in Europe of having an Internet dominated by the United States.
