    How does this relate to the copyright issues around Google posting people’s work without their consent? Are these posted with the cooperation of the artist and publisher, and is the copyright acknowledged? I can’t really tell from reading part of Seth’s piece how this is being handled.

    There was also a Chris Ware story, part of Building Stories, I think, that ran in the Funny Pages, but for some reason, that one’s not online with the others.
