Sorry. Dead or Alive, not Teeth of the Tiger.

Association of Research Libraries Urges End to Litigation against Internet Archive
Quote:
CDL is a practice rooted in the fair use right of the US Copyright Act and recent judicial interpretations of that right. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many academic and research libraries have relied on CDL (including IA’s Open Library) to ensure academic and research continuity at a time when many physical collections have been inaccessible.

I was reading up on Georgia Tech's library yesterday for another reason and was a bit surprised that Georgia Tech combined libraries with Emory and most of the physical books are in a climate controlled warehouse, and everyone works from scanned imagines of the books. Having scanned books that you access online seems to be the norm for research universities. Of course, the general public can't access the books.

In the US, academia has long had some fairly extensive fair use exceptions granted it with regards to academic research. I'm sure they are worried that some judge will rule with a broad brush and open a can of worms. Non profit educational is one of the four explicit fair use exceptions.

Just a few days ago Internet Archive released this article on their blog:

"Libraries lend books, and must continue to lend books: Internet Archive responds to publishers’ lawsuit"

along with the defense's response, July 28, 2020 (PDF):

Quote:
The Internet Archive does what libraries have always done: buy, collect, preserve, and share our common culture. In furtherance of that mission, the Internet Archive has received grant funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Science Foundation, and the federal government’s Institute of Museum and Library Services, among many other sources. Many libraries and archives, including the Library of Congress, Boston Public Library, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and smaller community libraries like the Allen County Public Library trust the Internet Archive to digitize books and other materials in their collections in order to preserve physical texts and to facilitate public access. The Internet Archive is part of a network of libraries around the world—each of which is using digital technologies to meet the many challenges of serving patrons with diverse needs and differing abilities and to ensure that the growing storehouse of human creativity is not lost because no one has the capacity to preserve it.

[...]
and here's Techdirt's article about it:

"Internet Archive Responds To Publishers Lawsuit: Libraries Lend Books, That's What We Do"

Except as was said before, the IA is being misleading. Real libraries respect copyright, usually buy the initial copies and for ebooks a licence for how many copies they can loan. In many countries there is also a per times loaned small royalty paid.
