So having taken a brief hiatus from my blogging responsibilities, I apologize deeply for having been absent. The work/school/family committments became a bit overwhelming. However, I’m happily able to report that University Librarian, Paul Courant, is a strong supporter of natural language processing efforts by you researchers. Yahoo! He believes that NLP is a firmly founded in the fair use concept of copyright. It’s so good to know that we aren’t the crazy ones and to confirm that publishers are quite crazy. You can audibly hear my pleasant sigh of contentment.
