    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. "

Giornali belgi contro Google: testo della decisione della Corte d'appello (Almansi vide... - 0 views

    "Pubblicato da Claude Almansi in data 30.07.11 10:06

    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"

    "We are delighted that Copiepresse has given us assurances that we can re-include their sites in our Google search index without court-ordered penalties," Google said in a Monday statement. "We never wanted to take their sites out of our index, but we needed to respect a court order until Copiepresse acted. We remain open to working in collaboration with Copiepresse members in the future.""

Copiepresse vs. Google - Digitale Allmend - 0 views

    "22. Juli 2011 von hartwig
    Nicht nur in der Schweiz wünschen Zeitungen, am finanziellen Erfolg von Google zu partizipieren. Sie stellen sich auf den Standpunkt, dass ihre hart erarbeiteten Inhalte Google zum finanziellen Erfolg verhelfen und darum mit einem Leistungsschutzrecht pauschal abgegolten werden müssen. Man kann das natürlich auch anders sehen: Googles hart erarbeitete Technologie ermöglicht den Zeitungsinhalten erst international wahrgenommen zu werden. Insofern müsste Google ein Leistungsschutzrecht beanspruchen, das mittels Pauschalabgaben der Zeitungen zu finanzieren ist …

    In Belgien hat dieser Widerspruch zu einer legalen Pirouette geführt. Copiepresse, ein Verband zur Wahrnehmung von Urheberrechten der Tagespresse, hat durchgesetzt, dass Google die Artikel des Verlags nicht mehr publizieren darf. Da diese nun von niemandem mehr gefunden werden, klagt er nun gegen den Boykott durch Google. Man wollte ja Google nicht am Publizieren der Links hindern, sondern nur dafür kassieren, dass sie publiziert werden."

    How Google Dominates Us
    August 18, 2011
    James Gleick

    "This much is clear: We need to decide what we want from Google. If only we can make up our collective minds. Then we still might not get it.

    The company always says users can "opt out" of many of its forms of data collection, which is true, up to a point, for savvy computer users; and the company speaks of privacy in terms of "trade-offs," to which Vaidhyanathan objects:

    Privacy is not something that can be counted, divided, or "traded." It is not a substance or collection of data points. It's just a word that we clumsily use to stand in for a wide array of values and practices that influence how we manage our reputations in various contexts. There is no formula for assessing it: I can't give Google three of my privacy points in exchange for 10 percent better service.

    This seems right to me, if we add that privacy involves not just managing our reputation but protecting the inner life we may not want to share. In any case, we continue to make precisely the kinds of trades that Vaidhyanathan says are impossible. Do we want to be addressed as individuals or as neurons in the world brain? We get better search results and we see more appropriate advertising when we let Google know who we are. And we save a few keystrokes."

ATI: ATI Google Apps Accessibility Evaluation (ATI Google Apps Accessibility Evaluation) - 0 views

    "In the summer of 2010, Peter Mosinskis from CSU Channel Islands assembled a team of approximately fifteen volunteers from seven different CSU campuses and one from the UC system to evaluate the accessibility of Google Apps. The team also recruited student volunteers and screen reader users to assist with the testing. Automated, manual, and screen reader testing began the first week of January 2011 and was completed February 4th.

    The report has been completed and posted here for your review. The CSU Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) Staff, ATI Leadership Council, and Google have reviewed the Google Apps Accessibility Evaluation report.

    We discovered a number of accessibility issues during our testing. These issues are outlined in the report as well as "workarounds" that can be used to improve the user experience for persons with disabilities. When campuses choose to use Google Apps, they are required to provide an equally effective service for people with disabilities and it is critical for campuses to ensure that the "workarounds" meet the educational needs of the student and/or faculty. The March 15, 2011 USA TODAY online news article "Complaint: Google programs hard for blind students" illustrates possible legal problems that may result from adopting the Google Apps for Education suite.

    Questions or Comments about this report may be directed to CSU ATI Staff"

CSU ATI: ATI Google Apps Accessibility Evaluation (Section 1. Executive Summary) - 0 views

    "CSU testing confirmed the accessibility problems furnished by Google in their Voluntary Product Accessibility Templates (VPATs; see Appendix). The applications tested had varying levels of accessibility; most had significant accessibility problems which inhibit users of assistive technology from successful, regular use of the products. Some workarounds are now available for Docs, Spreadsheets, Presentations and Calendar. Limiting use of Docs, Spreadsheets, Presentations and Calendar to administrative or back-office processes and systems is recommended when possible. Limiting adoption and use of Forms, Sites, and Gmail Chat is recommended until accessibility improves or better workarounds become available. "

California State U. Report Warns of Accessibility Issues in Google Services - Wired Cam... - 0 views

    By Jie Jenny Zou

    California State University's Accessible Technology Initiative suggests in a report released this week that universities limit their campuswide use of Google's free Web services based on what it calls a variety of inaccessibility issues for the blind and those with other disabilities.

    The report, "ATI Google Apps Accessibility Evaluation," looked at the accessibility of Google Apps for Education, a free software suite available to colleges and elementary and secondary schools. Hundreds of colleges have adopted Google Apps as their official campus e-mail and communication service for students."
