At Freeload Press students and scholars will be able to download books for free. The catch is that downloads are offered with a lot of commercial ads to offset the price of the books.
Freeload Press promises that "in exchange for filling out a quick survey, students will be able to freely download PDF files of eventually as many as 250,000 textbooks and study aids by 2007. To date, 25,000 students have registered and downloaded 50,000 titles."
