gutenberg.com is not gutenberg.org

It seems some site has taken the domainname gutenberg.com, blogging news about e-ink devices, most likely in an attempt to catch more readers.
I don't know but don't think the site is related to gutenberg.org where you can download free ebooks from.

I accidently stumbled upon the site, and thought it'd be a nice read for those who haven't yet seen the site!

they also seem to promote some sites with ebooks, like for instance http://www.bookrags.com/.

I don't know if this site has different, or the same books as gutenberg.org.
Anyone has an idea if they just copy the books and redistribute them, or if they mainly have their own works?
