[French] Content Strikes Back [2:25 pm]

French court rules against Google in books case (pdf)

A Paris court ruled Friday that Google Inc. is breaking French law with its policy of digitizing books, handing the U.S. Internet giant a euro10,000-$14,300-a-day fine until it rids its search engine of the literary extracts.

A judge also ordered Google to pay euro300,000 $430,000 in damages and interest to French publisher La Martiniere, which brought the case on behalf of a group of French publishers.
