Illustrators vs. Google

The New York Times published an interesting and disturbing article on Sunday about Google asking dozens of well-knowing illustrators to contribute their artwork for a new Google browser for free. Google seemed to think the exposure would be enough for the illustrators, but they were wrong. Most of the illustrators turned them down and launched a fire-storm against Google on the illustrator blog Drawger. Shame on Google for thinking they could scam some great art out of some illustrators in such a harsh economic environment!

I love google, and I love their products, but they do some things that are shady. Like, customer service? What customer service?
