New Carousel in Google Search - Youtube videos in Bigger View
http://www.webmasterworld.com/google/4613400.htm


it's not just about videos !

try searching "Brian Eno" for instance, his whole discography on a box on the right of the screen under "Albums", it will come out including all the covers, click on the covers and you will get a full size image !

on the bottom right of the screen there's a miserable text in gray color over black background saying "Images may be subject to copyright".

now, what if i did some CD cover for a band and google display them in high-res ?
what do they mean "images MAY BE subect to copyright" ? of course they ARE ALL copyrighted since they belong to commercial products and commercial photo/visual artists !

there's no limit to the greedyness of google nowadays, i expect the music majors to sue google in droves.

Google will never be sued over their search. I have a hard time believing that. Because they have done so much damage in the past, and never got sued. At least not over changes to the search as far as I know.

Viacom had a legal dispute that went on for almost a decade and in the end they got what ?
there's no justice nowadays, if even Viacom can't win how a single photographer can have any chance ?

The don't be evil days are long gone, Google is the internet maffia. If you mess around not liking something about them, they break your arm deindex you. My pal working for a rather large content provider told that when they started 'sponsoring' less keywords, google just deindexed ALL their white labels, pronto. "pay up or we smash your face in"

Because Google is just finding things, not storing. They link to sites own data, so what are they doing that's illegal? Running a search engine? Hardly a crime.

Try Metacrawler, which searches the top searches. I still use it for good results, less spam, less advertising scams where everything you can type leads to an unrelated website. SEO has become SPAM and dead sites are making it even harder to find good results.

That's why Google wins. (in theory) Better science and algorithms.
 
http://www.metacrawler.com/  really, try it! It finds my sites better than the rest. Must be good?  :)

I didnt mention the word illegal. Google ruins businesses legally. They'll never get sued.
