Google liable for damages in France

April 2011


A French court has ordered Google to pay $598,000 in damages for copyright infringement to a number of filmmakers and a photographer after their works appeared in Google’s search results and on Google Video. The appellate court in Paris ruled in favour of film producer Mondovino and others who brought copyright infringement claims against Google. Google reportedly removed the works when asked by copyright holders, but the works then reappeared online. The company is said to be considering an appeal.
