Google bumbs into French copyright laws and gets fined
A Paris court has ruled that Google has broken France copyright laws when it displays snippets of books in search results. The court fined Google no less than 300.000 euros to be paid to French publisher La Martiniere.
As expected Google wasn't very happy with the ruling. They said:
"French readers now face the threat of losing access to a significant body of knowledge and falling behind the rest of internet users"
Google already said they will go and appeal the decision made by the court.
"It shows Google that they are not King of the world and can do whatever they want."
