My 2 cents

Well, more like half a cent and request for your more informed 2 cents. This whole Google Print case hinges on Google copying copyrighted works. But they're only copying them to the extent that a program pulls out some relevant excerpts so that they can index the books. Libraries do the same thing with card catalogs, but it isn't done by a program but by hand. So the issue seems to be that the case is purely about a technicality and that the AAP is missing the intent of the law. Am I right, or am I misunderstanding this?
