Copyright immunity beckons for searchengines in UK
While in one country (Germany) the government is doing all it can to stop Google from becoming even more influential, the other country (UK) decides to help search engines a little by changing the law.
The new law, proposed by conservative Lord Lucas states:
"Every provider of a publicly accessible website shall be presumed to give a standing and non-exclusive license to providers of search engine services to make a copy of some or all of the content of that website, for the purpose only of providing said search engine services ...
If this amendment would be accepted it would hand search engines, and with that thus Google, legal immunity when it comes to indexing content. Rupert Murdoch wouldn't be able to stop Google if he wanted to.
