OCLC Power Grab

Nov 13, 2008 | 1 minute read

OCLC was once a great service, but it’s gone a little too far.

From Aaronsw’s blog:

[OCLC is] demanding that every library that uses WorldCat give the copyright to all its catalog records to OCLC. It literally is asking libraries to put an OCLC copyright notice on every book record in their catalog. It wants to own every library.

This is ludicrous. Go read his post, and go sign the petition.
