Another Reason To Boycott The French

Who do they think they are?

Agence France-Presse has sued Google News, a subsidiary of the web search engine Google for $17,500,000. AFP is alleging copyright infringement because Google News dared use AFP news summaries, headlines, and photographs without permission. I'm guessing Google News was linking to the articles because that's what they do, and in the process credited AFP. The harm must come from the fact that too many people were reading AFP articles.

It will be interesting to see how many readers AFP gets once Google News, its search engine, and the other search engines pull all references to AFP pieces. Don't you just hate it when you shoot yourself in the head?

Just another example of French arrogance, and another great reason to boycott France.
