    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.
