Google wantonly engages in the world's largest copyright infringement 
enterprise on the planet. Google illegally scanned copyrighted material 
without consent of the copyright owner and placed that content for free 
on Google Books so they could sell advertising around it. I was a victim 
of that as were many other authors I know.

Despite their argument about only showing 20%, it is not a fixed 20%, it 
is based on search phrases. Once you have access to the index of a book, 
you can search for each word in the index and eventually obtain the 
entire book. I know this because I received an email from someone in 
India demanding I send him the entire book in Word format so he could 
put it on the company server (he worked for an off-shore IT firm). This 
is how I found out Google had scanned this book:


The case against Google is still going on. It will eventually go to the 
Supreme Court.

You can read more about the image copyright issue here:


Referencing an original work directly from its host via the url AND 
providing a link back to the original hosting location is not generally 
considered copyright infringement. Thus, something like 
http://www.somesite.com/theirImage.png is fine. Making a local copy on 
actual media, for whatever reason, without permission of the copyright 
holder is illegal.
