Google Settles With 2 Belgium Media Groups

By Li Evans

Googlenewsbelgium Over the holiday weekend here in the states, the rest of the world business and courts churned, including Belgium.  Google didn't rest on its laurels either, in fact news first broken by Bloomberg and updated 4 times since originally breaking cam on Friday 11/24/06.

Google was also in court appealing the ruling back in September against them using Belgium news sources without permission in its Belgium news portal.  Friday's news now excludes the Belgium groups Sofam (who represent photographers) and Scam (who represent journalists) from the case.  A ruling on the case is expected sometime in January 2007.

Meanwhile, the Danes are still without Google news as Google put that version on hold because of the Danes wanting and "opt in" option, rather than the standard robots.txt file.
