No Fools! Scribd Offers Free Document Conversion and Storage

Pete Cashmore of Mashable posts today about Scribd, the self-described YouTube for documents, and their initiative to convert paper documents to their proprietary iPaper format for a limited time at no cost to their users. This is in addition to the unlimited storage provided for a given set of document types, including popular Microsoft Office, Open Office, and Adobe types. Scribd is certainly to be lauded for their forward thinking, but questions abound.

Are the original documents returned? Scribd notes that they may refuse to scan a document and publish it at their discretion. What is the criteria and what happens then? How do they determine “full legal rights” to the documents that are sent to them?

More information is here. Seems like a service worth watching.
