John Battelle's Searchblog: Google Clarifies Philosophy Re: Content

 John Battelle gets an update from a Google rep:

Because we don’t own this content, over the years we’ve come up with three primary principles to ensure that we respect content owners and protect their rights:

* we respect copyright;
* we let owners choose whether we index their content in our products;
* we try to bring benefit back to content owners by partnering with them.

Battelle's book is an excellent review of Google history and strategy -- recommended reading.
