Obscurity is irrelevant: If the copyright owner wants them to languish in obscurity, that is their right to decide and not Google's. Especially since their motivation is commercial.
Ah, but how many of those authors want their books to languish in obscurity? I'm not lobbying for or against what Goggle has or might have done, just posing the questions.
