Why Publishing Should Send Fruit-Baskets to Google

Interesting Post Over @Boingboing on Google Book Search. They say the most common objections reflect a nonsensical vision of how copyright law and computer security work. The reality is that the biggest threat to book-writers and publishers is that their works are simply invisible to people who get all their information from the Internet. Google Book Search makes books visible to those people. In so doing, Google will save authors asses from oblivion. Instead of sending legal threats to Google, Cory think that writers and publishers should be sending them fruit-baskets and thank-you notes.
