Copyright question

Google links millions(?) of images.  Why I can't do the same?  In the Secretariat post, if I had posted an image of Secretariat I found on Google, and linked the image to its source, I've done the same thing Google does.  They're not getting sued for copyright violations, are they?

Add why is posting book covers from Amazon different?

Answered offline. They have been sued, and 9th Circuit has held Google's use of thumbnails is fair use.
