Google and UMichigan Amend Scanning Agreement
Google and the University of Michigan have renegotiated part of its agreement where Google scans its books for available online. The recent settlement between Google and publishers has raised issues over the cost of institutional subscriptions the publishers will put in place for access to the collection. The new agreement/amendment gives Michigan the right to a digital copy of every book on its shelves irrespective of whether the book was scanned at Michigan or somewhere else. The school also gets greater distribution rights to its digital copies.
