Belgian Courts Stick-it to Google
The Belgians must have taken anti-Google lessons from the French if a recent Belgian court order is anything to go by.
Inside Google reports Google has been ordered to remove all news stories from Belgian publishers (including any cached items) from Google News.
In a move that seems a little ridiculous, the court also ordered Google to display the entire judgement document on the homepage of Google.be for five days.
Fines, for failing to comply, could cost Google 1m – 1.5m Euros a day!
