Apparently so. Atlantic Monthly (http://www.theatlantic.com/doc/
200510) seems to pick and choose what it puts online. (So, for that

Publishers seem to be still leery about taking the internet seriously !
Even university presses are freaking out about google's digitization
efforts - worried that google will digitize books they've totally
forgotten they've published and own the rights too. See, Anick

a grip on the "future" (hey, even getting a grip on the past is no
simple task ! :)
I'll see if I can find it in the library and post an followup
