"Google Print" angekuendigt

Amazon muß sich warm anziehen!
Nach dem Börsengang will Google einen neuen Service aufbauen: Google Print.
Momentan noch nicht zugänglich ist eine Testdatenbank mit 60.000
(oder sowas) von Printpublikationen, also solchen, die eben nicht online
vorliegen und daher bislang in Google allenfalls zufällig als
Rezension oder OCLC-Datensatz auffindbar sind.
Auffindbar ist immerhin folgende erste Ankündigung:
Hier folgt der gesamte Text.
(Verlage, die ihren "Content" einbringen wollen, können sich schon melden.)
Der zweite Satz ist die überraschende Erkenntnis, die wohl zu der Idee des
Dienstes geführt hat:

What exactly is Google Print (BETA)?

Google's mission is to provide access to all the world's information and make
universally useful and accessible. It turns out that not all the world's
information is already on the Internet, so Google has been experimenting with
number of publishers to test their content online. During this trial,
content is hosted by Google and is ranked in our search results according to
same technology we use to evaluate websites.

On Google Print pages, we provide links to some popular book sellers that may
offer the full versions of these publications for sale. Book seller links are
paid for by those sites, nor does Google benefit if you make a purchase from
of these retailers. In addition, these pages show contextually-targeted
ads that are served through the Google AdSense program.

How can I tell if a result is part of Google Print or part of another

Pages that are part of the Google Print program are identified with
print.google.com/print at the beginning of their URLs and have an "About
Print" link at the bottom of each page. These pages are also clearly marked
Google's search results with a [BOOK] or similar tag as noted in the

[BOOK] 1,000 Knock Knock Jokes for Kids (Excerpt)
...Kids can never get enough knock-knock jokes. For the insatiable riddler,
are 1,000 jokes that will satisfy the need to tease. Here are knock-knocks
