Google Library Project Put on Hold 

This is too bad. Google should be flexing its muscles here, not giving into the demands of publishers.

Just another sign that IP has overstepped its bounds and needs serious overhaul. Of course, as long as the content industry runs shit in Washington that won't be happening. I had hoped having large players like Google on the side of enhanced access (for its own self-serving motives, of course, but the proper side of the debate nonetheless) might change the balance of power some in this ongoing debate.

I still think they will, but it looks like it'll take more time than Google and I first thought.
