This post probably deserves mention all by itself: Karen Coyle compares the Google Library Project contracts with Michigan and UC–the two cases where confidentiality clauses are trumped by state-agency laws.
I won’t comment on the post because it stands on its own. It’s a long post, and if you want to print it out, use IE or some browser other than Firefox (since Karen Coyle’s using Blogger, which as usual means that the printout starts moving over toward the right and eventually loses portions of the text–but not, apparently, in IE).
As for Karen Coyle blogging: Welcome. As a well-established thoughtful, perceptive, informed, and articulate voice, you add to the liblog universe. And I can say that not ever having intended to blog doesn’t matter…being one of those myself.
