I have several times encountered a situation that some particular book had preview in Google Books, but later the same book (on the same link) was without preview.
On several occasions I have, for example, included link to some particular page on Google Books in a post on some Stack Exchange site. I distinctly remember that at the time when I posted the link, the preview was available. Of course, I am aware that preview is not available for all users and it is limited. But when I follow the same link now, which means that I get the same book and the same edition, the preview is not available anymore. I have noticed this in a books about mathematics, since this is the area for which I most frequently search something on Google Books. The examples I was able to find were books published between 1990 and 2000, so they are not very recent books.
I suppose that preview on Google Books depends on some kind of agreement between Google and the publisher of the particular book. But I am somewhat surprised, that the possibility of preview the book (and search in it) is changed.
What are the reasons why preview is removed from some books?
