Copyright Questions On Google Digitization Project

Harvard-Google Project Faces Copyright Woes from the Harvard Crimson looks at copyright issues being raised
about Google’s plans to digitize thousands of books in the Harvard University Library. Points of views
from both sides, though I have to say this quote from a past library directory made my eyebrows raise: "Copyright laws are written for companies like Time Warner and Disney
instead of research libraries like Harvard. [These laws are] not aimed at us." Actually, I thought copyright laws were written to protect the rights of publishers from anyone,
be it Time Warner, Harvard or a public corporation like Google.
