I have never heard of this but anyone "Taking control from 'those who write it'" would be running afoul of very many laws.  There *is* a project to digitize books that are out of copyright and classics.  This would include works like Malleus Malefecarum (Hammer of Evil), The Origin of Species, The Devil's Dictionary, and those about Sherlock Holmes and  Prof S.F.X. van Dusen, the Thinking Machine.  Most, if not all, of the authors are dead.

I gave seen a few such sites; Google may be behind one or more.

Hope this helps.
