Commenters Blogged About the MPAA Sucking…Oh Wait:

IP Address: [redacted]
Name: blunted
Email Address: [redacted]
URL: [redacted]

the best is when I hear the MPAA talk about how they’re losing money due to
"crooks", who are "stealing" the music. Funny how record executives, pretty
slimy and unscrupulous people in their own right, would get so upset about
someone giving them a taste of their own medicine.

When Google Was Testing “Google Print”

To me, from AdSense

Also from Google: Google Print

Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. Since a lot of the world’s information isn’t yet online, we’re helping to get it there. Google Print puts the content of books where you can find it most easily; right in Google search results.

To use Google Print, just search on Google as you normally would. For example, do a search on a subject such as “Books about Ecuador Trekking,” or search on a title like “Romeo and Juliet.” Whenever a book contains content that matches your search terms, we’ll show links to that book in your search results. Click on the book title and you’ll see the page that contains your search terms, as well as other information about the book. You can also search for other topics within the book. Click “Buy this Book” and you’ll go straight to a bookstore selling the book online.

Right now we’re just testing this program, so you may not see books in your results for every search. But you can expect to see more and more books popping up in your search results in the coming months.

If you’re a book publisher and you’d like to have your books included in Google search results, look into the Google Print program for publishers.
