> What can one do? Copyright is probably the biggest legal Internet issue. Google is probably the biggest search around. Should we be able to follow their example, and reproduce pages for purposes of commentary, features and related usage?
The google pages are available to anyone with an Internet connection, and therefore people need not actually visit the original site, but just google for many of the orginal site's services.
