Google French Copyright Case -- THAT'S What I'm Talkin' About
I confess that I know nothing about the facts of this case, which are reported at http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-10418319-93.html.
However, I can assert confidently that this is what well-designed infringement litigation does (such as the case on which I consulted, Ryan v. CARL, which resulted in a $7.25 million settlement in 2000).
Litigation is not supposed to write legislation. It is supposed to hammer infringers and, in the process, influence legislation.
