The ethical viewpoints of Liberals are quite different than those of conservatives. Google is a very Liberal organization who thinks the normal rules do not apply to them.

Why would they digitize copyrighted books and then plan to make them freely available to others? This is not their property and they have no right to do something like that.
"Don't be evil." Bwahahahahaha!
Another comforting thought related to the other major player on the web who is severely ethically challenged. I dislike everything about FaceBook and especially Zuckerberg, who has repeatedly been caught selling personal information about members in direct violation of his own policies.
