Belgians seek Google damages

May 28, 2008|From Times Wire Services

Belgian French-language newspapers said they wanted search engine Google Inc. to pay as much as $77 million in damages for allegedly publishing and storing their content without permission.

The newspaper copyright group Copiepresse said it had summoned Google to appear again before a Brussels court in September that would decide on its claim that it suffered damages of $51.7 million to $77.5 million.

Mountain View, Calif.-based Google said it could not comment because it had not yet received the legal documents.
