French invade U.S. courts in the Great Google War

Updating this previous post on one of the Google Adsense lawsuits in France, a French appeals court has affirmed a lower courts decision in a similar case. An English translation of the decision can be found here. As French companies pile on, Google now faces a lawsuit from Agence France-Presse (“AFP”) alleging copyright infringement of AFP’s news and photo content. This time the pesky French have invaded our own courts (the case was filed in the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.), which indicates a shocking turn of legal jingoism that is sure to inspire George W. to rise to Google’s defense. Reports, however, indicate that Google may short circuit this dispute by removing the disputed content.
