Google vs. Yahoo

It used to be Google vs. Authors’ Guild, but now the focus may change to Google vs. Yahoo. As has been reported elsewhere, Yahoo and its partners (librarians and non-profit groups) plan to digitize and make available copyrighted content, with the difference that the program is Opt-In (as opposed to Google’s Opt-Out) and that the full content of the text will be available (as opposed to Google’s snippets.)
