Google isn't a dumb company. They knew this would be the result all along.
The real losers here are the libraries, especially the ones that funded the
packaging and transport of their materials to the Google scanning centers
(because Google didn't pay for that, fyi) But hey, it looks good to be part
of such a prestigious group of libraries in partnering with Google to
deliver content freely* to the public!
Pardon my cynicism,
