Google Bringing Rare Books to On Demand Publishing Wow!

• PC World
You will soon be able to print your own copy of rare and hard-to-find books thanks to a deal between Google and On Demand Books, the maker of the Espresso Book Machine. Dubbed the "ATM for books," the Espresso Book Machine can print a "library quality" paperback book in less than five minutes for "under a penny a page," according to the manufacturer.

Given the history of Google Books, I'm sure they'll be printing lots of "rare" books they don't own the rights to without even asking and claiming that they own the copyright by default. Then authors will have to sue them to get the rights to their own books back. Of course their definition of "rare" will be anything not already owned by the larger publishers.
