Google profits finding USA Today pay articles 
Searching for an article I was interviewed for in USA Today Jan 2005...Searching on USAToday shows the article for sale $3.95 and showed a abstract only. But if you search for Kevin Cocco on Google they show the full article on VoIP indexed and available. Making money with AdWords. Google is also indexing old news papers from micro film. Interesting to see NYTimes win-win angle on this effort.
