"Original" yizkor books are protected by copyright law just as are
translations. If your announcements are to be interpreted as delivered, this
would be an infringement on copyright law. I still cannot believe that
institutions like the New York Public Library and the NYBC would simply
ignore the law. Have you gotten any word to the effect that they plan to
obtain permission >from the copyright holders before digitizing ANY titles?

One additional comment. In its announcement of the digitization of
yizkor books, the NYBC stated only that it would digitize the
original yizkor books.
