You could call it the revenge of Google.
The search engine has removed all links to the belgian mewspapers: “Le Soir”, “La Libre” and “la DH”, three major belgian newspapers which have sued Google before.
This was ofcourse not what the court asked for, they only asked to remove the articles from Googles Newspage.
Try searching for one of the three newspapers on Google Belgium and on any other Google. You’ll find links to the newspapers pages on any of the pages except belgium.
Google wants to make clear that they have alot of power, as they are the NÂ°1 search engine worldwide.
This fight is followed by the entire world, as it could encourage other editors to do the same thing as the 3 Newspapers from belgium.
I’ll keep you posted!
