Google Sued for Copyright Infringement & Unfair Competition | Threadwatch.org Well there is so much copyrighted material in Google’s image search that it was inevitable that this would happen.
So once again we will hear the recently oft repeated court case of whether or not the technology is responsible for the actions of individual users.
As Google is just the search vehicle and has no real way to distinguish between copyrighted and non-copyrighted images shouldn’t they be exempt from what individual users post on their pages. It would be impossible for Google to be the copyright police, but as they say, here we go again. (Thanks, John Battelle) Techdirt’s take.
