Goog and the AAP: A Summary of the Agreement by the ARL

TMA=Too many Acronyms.

Google’s (Goog) agreement with the Association of American Publishers (AAP) is summarized by the US’s Association of Research Libraries (ARL) with special emphasis on the implications of the agreement for libraries, and especially large US research library systems. A press release is here.

With it’s special deference to commercial incentives, US copyright law differs from Canadian, so the terms of this agreement may be irksome to Canadian libraries, should the AAP or other US bodies try to apply it here.
