Printing Google Print Books....

...is not allowed. From a listserv:

"I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Project Gutenberg, where the contents of books that are out-of-copyright are available to be printed out or pasted into another document. Apparently this will not be allowed when Google has their database of books in place, even for books that no longer come under copyright restrictions. I read in the NYTimes a few years ago about a women who printed out an entire Jane Austen novel. It took her the better part of a day, but at least her effort was cost-free, except for the paper she used. Does Google have any idea that there is already a magnificent book digitization project on the net?"

And I wonder if Google crawls Project G?
