Argument against Google Autolink

Dave's article points why Google Autoulink modifies the content

"Any news organization or academic journal that publishes on the Web now has a
serious integrity issue because of the existence of the Google toolbar with the
AutoLink feature. All documents will have to contain a disclaimer that links
contained within the page may not have been placed there by the author or
organization whose copyright notice is on the page. Same is true for legal
documents, end-user license agreements, rental agreements, etc. And if links are
changeable, is text subject to change as well? Might Google correct our
spelling? Or might they correct our thinking? Where is the line?"
