Belgian Newspapers Return to Google


The dispute between Google and the Belgian newspapers (previous coverage here and here) has taken a new twist today as the publishing group representing the papers has allowed Google to again link to their content.

Copiepresse, the publishing group representing Le Soir, Le Libre Belgique and other Belgian newspapers, decided that links could again be included in Google's search results page, but without links to cached versions of the content. The newspapers are using a "no archive" tagging tool that prevents Google's search engine from caching their Web pages.

Oh yeah - their copyright lawsuit against Google remains pending.
