Searching the "Deep Web"

Many Internet search engines do not have access to documents stored in databases, because in order to gain access, it requires online forms to be completed. Google or Yahoo only index a very small percentage of the web.

A company called Glenbrook has developed a search engine that uses artificial intelligence to complete online forms in order to gain access to "deep web" documents. See the Seattle Times article on September 5th called Safecrackers open up the "deep Web" for more information.

As applications are developed comparable to this, I expect we will see more copyright lawsuits and potentially more information would be accessible only by subscription to protect from this deep collection of data.
