    Nel 2006, Copiepresse, la società di gestione di diritti degli editori belgi di quotidinai francofoni e germanofoni, intentò un processo a Google per le brevi citazioni di Google News e per le versioni archiviate (in cache) linkate in Google Search. Il 5 maggio 2011, una decisione della Corte d'appello di Bruxelles confermava, con una lieve riformulazione, il giudizio del tribunale di prima istanza"

    Google a repris vendredi les hostilités contre des éditeurs de journaux en Belgique (dont Sudpresse), avec lesquels il est en conflit depuis 2006 à propos de son service Google Actualités, en cessant de référencer les sites de ces journaux sur son moteur de recherche principal. Une recherche effectuée vendredi avec les mots "Sudpresse" sur le célèbre moteur de recherche renvoie vers un article Wikipedia, mais plus vers votre site d'infos préféré. "

Le groupe Rossel dénonce une procédure "inutile et vexatoire" - lacapitale.be - 0 views

    "Redaction en ligne

    Publié le 15/07 à 19h56

    Selon Rossel, Google reproduit une mesure de rétorsion contre les contenus rédactionnels du groupe, quatre ans après avoir exclu les liens vers certains sites de presse francophone, à la suite du prononcé du jugement qui la condamnait à retirer les photos et articles protégés par le droit d'auteur de ses publications Google News et des mémoires caches.

    Rossel considère également que Google est parfaitement au courant du fait que Copiepresse n'a pas attaqué le fonctionnement de son moteur de recherche lui-même. Néanmoins, le Groupe Rossel affirme qu'il reste ouvert à des négociations avec Google, dans l'attente, en cas d'échec, des décisions judiciaires pour les procédures que Copiepresse a introduites concernant le paiement des astreintes judiciaires et des indemnités. Depuis vendredi matin, les liens vers les sites d'informations dont les droits sont gérés par Copiepresse (IPM, Rossel et Cie, les Éditions de l'Avenir, Sudpresse, Mediafin et Grenz-Echo) ne sont plus mentionnés sur le moteur de recherche Google."

Beware of Google's power; brings traffic to websites but it can also taketh away - Tech... - 1 views

    Belgians have invented Smurfs, make some of the best beer in the world, and know how to fry a potato chip. However, one must say the country's leading newspapers scored an own goal when they took Google to court last year for listing their content in the search engine's news section and won on copyright.

    I guess they didn't look at how people arrive at a typical online newspaper site, which derives up to 50 percent or more of their visitors from Google. In addition to taking the group of papers out of its news section, Google also stopped indexing them in its search engine. Now the newspapers are complaining that they are being discriminated against unfairly!

    (...)

    Google has big power and the danger is how the company wields it in pursuit of profit. It brings traffic to websites, but the company that claims to "do no evil" can also taketh away ostracising those for good and bad reasons.

    The company is also stepping up its aggregation news service by trying to attract more volume through the "gamification" of Google News. Google is following a trend among news sites to bring readers in. With their consent, readers will be rewarded with "news badges" based on their reading habits. Badges of varying levels will be given out depending on the amount and types of articles you read. About 500 badges are available to suit a wide range of topics. Google News indexes about 50,000 sources. Keep reading and get those badges! Maybe."

Belgian Newspapers v. Google: Text of the Court of Appeal's Decision « Educat... - 0 views

    "Posted on August 1, 2011 by Claude Almansi

    In 2006, Copiepresse, the rights managing society of Belgian publishers of French- and German-language daily newspapers, sued Google about the snippets shown in Google News and about the cached versions displayed in Google Search. On May 5, 2011, a decision of the Brussels appeal court slightly reworded but basically confirmed the 2007 judgment of the first instance court :
    (...)
    This decision of the Brussels Court of Appeals is therefore important for legal studies: not only because of the doubt about what it actually ordered, but also because its long and detailed initial considerations illustrate several differences between the US and European legal cultures. Until recently, this decision was only available as a photographic PDF on Scribd. This meant that it was inaccessible to blind people and awkward to study for everybody. Fortunately, the BJ Institute of Hyderabad, India, has now made it available as accessible PDF and DOC files. This is the version I used for the above quotation.

    Thanks to the collaborators of the BJ Institute for their very accurate work."
