So Google can scan and shows books freely on the internet. The argument seems to be it only shows part of the book which falls under fair use and this helps to sell books. And the US Supreme Court agreed. But it's halfway there. How long before they figure out a way of getting around the remaining roadblock and showing the whole book?

And the bigger question is, how long will it be before they use the fair use angle with photos? And does this help or hurt photographers?
