Google Books Search Settlement

If you have published any books or parts of books that might be in academic libraries in the United States that are working with Google on their book-scanning project, you owe it to yourself to read this piece by Caleb Crain and then sign up at Google Books Settlement to find out what books of yours might be getting scanned. Please note the deadline to opt out of having your books scanned: May 5, 2009.

And you might be surprised what you find. For example, my unpublished doctoral dissertation, plus at least half a dozen of my translations for art catalogues.
