This notebook was flagged as violating Google Notebook Program Policies. If you feel it was flagged incorrectly, let us know.
Admittedly, when you follow the dialog to share a notebook, Google does a fair job of warning you this might happen:
When publishing a notebook that contains content from websites, please remember to respect the hard work (and legal rights) of the people that created the content. Publishing a notebook is the same as creating your own web page — don't include content in your notebook that you couldn't legally publish on your own webpage.

But what I wonder is how to avoid this? My primary use of Google Notebook is to store relevant quotes/quips from websites for future reference. This has a couple advantages over bookmarks...
- It cuts away the cruft of webpages so that I only see my notes, while still allowing me to store a simple link to the original reference for context
- It allows me to tag/organize my notes/thoughts and provides a nice search to make them retreivable
- Using the Google Notebook Firefox Extension makes all this a breeze
When I was at EclipseCon this Spring, I had the privilege to hear Cory Doctorow talk about copyright law and the possible societal repercussions of laws which make the majority of its population criminals.
