Need Full Access to Gov Docs in Google Book Search

An Open Letter to Google, William Patry, and Google’s Library Partners

All I’m asking for is full access for the public to government documents on Google BookSearch. These documents are in the public domain and therefore should not be limited by claims of copyright, by Google or by the Library Partners.

Also see:

Google Book Search treats government documents as copyrighted material

It looks as if Google is definitely considering all post-1923 works under copyright.
