AAUP Poses Questions & Concerns to Google

“A group of academic publishers called Google Inc.’s plan to scan millions of library books into its Internet search engine index a troubling financial threat to its membership.

“The Association of American University Presses said in a letter to Google that the online search engine’s library project “appears to involve systematic infringement of copyright on a massive scale.”

“The association, which represents 125 nonprofit publishers of academic journals and scholarly books, asked Google to respond to a list of 16 questions seeking more information about how the company plans to protect copyrights.”
