The Authors Alliance/Amy Brand interview is available here. It runs about 700 words.
Here’s one exchange from the interview.
Authors Alliance: What were the biggest hurdles to realizing this project, and how did you overcome these obstacles?
AB: It took us several months to agree on contractual terms that both the Press and the Internet Archive felt comfortable with. In particular, the Press wanted an agreement that allowed us to designate some works in the program as completely open access and others for lending only, and that’s where we landed. I hope that this negotiation process and resulting agreement will serve as a model for other publishers who grasp the many benefits of this opportunity.”
