WSJ.com - Google This: Amazon Plans To Sell Portions of Books Online

WSJ.com - Google This: Amazon Plans To Sell Portions of Books Online: "On the heels of Google Inc.'s controversial move to scan copyrighted books and make them searchable, Internet retailer Amazon.com Inc. is taking a page out of a different digital book.
The Internet retailer said it will introduce two programs next year that allow consumers to buy online access to entire books -- and to individual pages or chapters -- giving publishers and authors another way to generate revenue from their content, much like music labels are selling individual songs through Apple Computer Inc.'s iTunes."
