That’s Why They Call It Beta

Not 24 hours after putting it up, Google Earth’s download page is closed and there doesn’t seem to be anyway around it, even bit torrent fails. CNet reports that Google said they’d always planned to limit the number of initial downloads but to me that decision seems apocryphal.

As if that wasn’t enough, it’s a tempest in a teapot compared to what Nathan at Inside Google points out this morning. He calls it the Worst Copyright Violation Ever and it’s hard to disagree. Full length movies, tv shows and other copyrighted materials available through the new Google Video service.

Thing must be interesting in Google HQ this morning.
