Academic Publishers See Google Library Project As Threat

Slashdot | Publishers Protest Google Library Project
A group of academic publishers is challenging Google Inc.’s plan to scan millions of library books into its Internet search engine index, highlighting fears that the ambitious project will violate copyrights and stifle future sales. In a letter scheduled to be delivered to Google Monday, the Association of American University Presses described the online search engine’s library project as a troubling financial threat to its membership — 125 nonprofit publishers of academic journals and scholarly books.

A Listing of Legal Etnics Sites

Legal Ethics Sites

This list includes the LII materials on legal ethics
. It occurs to me that this is some space that CALI might get further into. We have a handful of Lessons
in this area, but it is an area that is of ongoing concern to all prationers (or should be). A reference library of Lessons linked to the LII materials would be something that would generate interest among attornies.
