Google Bans Newspapers from Search After Being Sued

This is why I’m not a journalist, I have an IQ.  A Belgium newspaper group decided to sue Google saying Google News was somehow infringing on their journalistic rights.  So now Google cannot put articles from these newspapers in the Google News feed.  If it does Google will have to pay in upwards of $40K per infringement.  So Google smashed them like Katy Perry after a concert and cut the newspapers out of their search engines completely.

Google represents 90% of all searches in Belgium and for most newspapers close to 80% of traffic.  In short these idiots are so screwed.
