Google not responsible for comments says UK Court
London-based Metropolitan International Schools lost their case against Google last Friday in which they claimed Google was responsible for comments on a forum of a website which appeared in the Google results.
Judge David Eady (also known as "Mr Justice Eady") said its up to the searcher to to click on a link or not: "When a snippet is thrown up on the user's screen in response to his search, it points him in the direction of an entry somewhere on the web that corresponds, to a greater or lesser extent, to the search terms he has typed in, It is for him to access or not, as he chooses. Google has merely, by the provision of its search service, played the role of a facilitator."
