---- AutoLink Toolbar feature looks like SmartTags

The issue with the G toolbar function is that when the feature is activated, that clear break between the published content and the advertising disappears. Or, at the very least, the line is blurred.
I think this and the copyright issue is what will kill them. A website owner might say in court, "I don't want my website associated with Amazon.com and you might confuse my visitors into thinking that we are associated with Amazon.com". Ironically, it's the same argument that Google used against Booble.
