Caching Google

This website, as a protest, is running a Google Cache. That is, not a cache like Google’s cache of other websites, but a cache of Google, page by page. Basically, its a protest against Google’s cache. Confused?

This is a protest site, pure and simple. I am not in anyway affiliated with Google, and they certainly do not condone this website. If Google sends a mean enough letter, I am sure that I will cower and take this site down in a second. After the recent ruling that stated Google’s cache of copyrighted materials was “fair use”, I decided to put this to the test myself. This is The Google Cache. You search Google, your results get cached. It is that simple. Is it legal?

Some of the pages in the recently cached list are hilarious.

I don’t get the whole anti-Google cache thing. This site actually makes smart arguement I never heard of, but I still support the cache as a useful tool in fighting internet downtime (better than the Web Accelerator, since the cache is more passive). I hate content thieves with a passion, but I don’t see the problem with Google’s copy.
