Google pushing the envelope?

As a follow up to my earlier post about Google Print, some publishing companies are starting to raise questions about whether the program is a violation of copyright laws. You can read articles on the subject from the Chronicle of Higher Education, Business Week, and the New York Times. (Thanks to Jonathan Dresner for the last link.)

As for pushing the legal envelope, check this out at Google Blogoscoped. My initial reaction is kinda like what you'd say as a kid when your friend stuck his hand in the cookie jar. "Ummmm ... You're gonna get in trouuuuuble!"

UPDATE: All of my advice below about how to get into Google Print has just become irrelevant. I learn from Google Blogoscoped that there is now a portal page.
