Slashdot on AAUP positon concerning Google

There is a fascinating discussion going on at Slashdot (slashdot.org) over
the recent letter by Peter Givler of the AAUP in which he objects to
Google's current scanning project.  The page at Slashdot is here:


The heading is "Publishers Protest Google Library Project."  The initial
post was by (username) Zonk.

Especially interesting is the commentary that is welling up about the
post.  It's filled with insightful remarks, cliches, ideological
outbursts, and grotesque errors of fact. Peer review, anybody?

Note also that the many references to Open Access span all media types
and not just research literature.
