Google Book Search: still some issues

First Google wouldn't show full pages from a congressional hearing because it thought the hearing was under copyright. Then I discovered this beauty, Larry Lessig's Free Culture, which is available under a CC license -- but not from Google!

Yes, it's certainly simple to check the status of a work and ask permission from the copyright owner every time you want to use one, isn't it?
