Extending Google Print

Funny stuff.

“Never mind those. Listen — I can use Google’s logic to get free copies of films, music — anything I want! All I have to do is borrow the CDs or DVDs, downloaded music or video or whatever, copy them, and then offer some sort of ‘fair use’ excerpt index service, just like Google is doing with the books. It’s the perfect gimmick. Maybe I could runs ads with them too — that’s where Google is really raking it in. Hell, if Google can do this sort of thing with one kind of copyrighted work without paying, why can’t anyone else do it too, and why should it be restricted just to books?”
