Google Print

I've seen lots of articles about Google Print (PW, Publisher's Lunch, my local paper) in the past week. I just don't get what all the fuss is about. Personally, I agree with Google's position on this one. Here's a snippet:

Let's be clear: Google doesn’t show even a single page to users who find copyrighted books through this program (unless the copyright holder gives us permission to show more). At most we show only a brief snippet of text where their search term appears, along with basic bibliographic information and several links to online booksellers and libraries.

I'm with you, Kim. Google's acting out of its own self-interest, of course, but I welcome the opportunity to make my book that much more visible.
