Publishers reactions to Google Print library digitization project

Just wanted to point out an entry from today in Gary Price's
SearchEngineWatch blog. It reports on a letter to Google from Peter Givler
Executive Director of the Association of American University Presses, in
which Givler contends that Google Print "appears to be built on a
fundamental violation of the copyright act."


In addition to Gary Price's summary of the issue, he offers links to new
articles in the Chronicle of Higher Education and Business Week that
discuss the matter.
