Google a trouvé coupable in French copyright case

Big G got popped in French court today, found guilty of copyright infringement for digitizing French book titles.  It’s gonna cost them $14,300 per day until they remove the titles in question.

“It shows Google that they are not the kings of the world and they can’t do whatever they want,” said Serge Eyrolles, president of France’s Syndicat National de l’Edition. He said Google had scanned 100,000 French books into its database – 80 percent of which were under copyright.
