The story of the most ambitious project ever conceived on the Internet, and the people who tried to stop it. In 1937 HG Wells predicted the creation of the "World Brain", a giant global library that contained all human knowledge which would lead to a new form of higher intelligence. Seventy year later the realization of that dream was underway, as Google scanned millions and millions of books for its Google Books website. But over half those books were still in copyright, and authors across the world launched a campaign to stop them, climaxing in a New York courtroom in 2011. A film about the dreams, dilemmas and dangers of the Internet, set in spectacular locations in China, USA, Europe and Latin America.Written by

The main point is that the whole case was a hoax to force the Europe, China and Japan to scan their books and put the internet to speed up the actual World Brain project because it would be a huge amount of work if Google has done it by itself. All data will be interconnected and All Seeing Eye will sharpen.
