Google cache raises copyright concerns -- took a while for people to catch on. Personally, I use the cache feature quite a bit, but primarily if a site is unavailable. The issue of outdated pages, broken links, and similar type things have been floating aroudn the web surfer's feet since the Web first appeared. Xanadu was supposed to help with these issues, but of course that projecti s forever under development. As an avid user of the cache feature -- I hope Google gets to keep it. If anything, from a non-lawyer viewpoint, it is fair use and perhaps a disclaimer encouraging people to click on the real link would make the cache-uers trangressors, not Google.
