for DUAL book home delivery
We launched our services to 30 million Russian families primary school textbooks, with PERSONALISED mailers for secure access to own content:
books are robust like in a hardcover + lightweight like in a softcover.
I exited my Russian businesses due to failing privacy laws in Russia.
Our service could save half of 20 billion $ annually textbook costs for US students; e.g. it saves 200 mln. $ mailers postage costs in Russia.
We received the legal statement of the Finnish Copyright Council for our business model of book private copying applying to each EU MS.
Problem or Opportunity
Publishers are killing public library, by high-jacking book digitisation, for controlling access to Knowledge, by gate-keeper-effect (illegal per EU MS laws), misusing personal data of eBook readers, for growing publishers profits, exploiting attention economy Real Time Bidding, contrary to readers & authors societal interests.
E.g. Amazon stopped selling eBooks to public libraries (hence 80% of eBooks stopped to be FREE accessible, raise inequality, marginalise under-served people) which is shrinking the public assets of Cultural Heritage, Public Access to Knowledge, Freedom of Information.
