The ACL and ICCL hold copyright on all the volumes being
scanned. However, in the case of proceedings volumes, this copyright
only applies to the compilation; the copyright of the individual
papers remains with the authors. It is the intention of the ACL to
disseminate all of these materials for free public access, to house
them in a permanent digital archive, and to publish them on DVD. Any
authors who object to having their ACL or COLING papers included in
the anthology should contact Steven Bird ( to have
their papers removed.
