Re:opensource OCR

Well quite a bit of the work is also patented. And yes, most of the book-scanning projects release images (the human is still the best OCR engine).* And last I believe that there are SDKs that you can buy if you want to incorperate OCR into your product.

*There's another reason for a book-scanning project to just release images. Piracy is a bit harder.
