“Never Look a Gift Horse in the Mouth” – Newspaper Sues Google for Linking

June 11, 2007 at 7:29 pm Leave a comment

A Belgian newspaper sued Google for copyright infringement when the newspaper’s headlines ended up in Google search results. Google quickly stopped indexing the papers and the suit was dropped. Apparently the paper’s traffic dropped an immediate 25% due to the loss of Google referrals. (Via The Future of News)

It is almost like listening to the moral of a fairy tale… or an old expression like “never look a gift horse in the mouth“. If someone gives you an amazing gift (like a gift horse) don’t complain. Accept it graciously. Thank you Google… better yet, How can we help you help us?

Also, thanks Rebba for the “horse photo”. (charming.. Originally uploaded by _rebekka.)
