    Hello,

    Google Suggest’s features poses complex legal problems in France ; this month’s decision about intellectual property rights completes another decision of the Apeal Court that fined Google (50.000€) for public insult for adding the suggestion “crook” to a company name (details, in french : http://www.donneespersonnelles.fr/google-suggest-50000-euros-dommages-interets-injure-publique).

    Now both of these decisions raises a lot of debates in the technical and the legal community because of the automatic means employed by Google to offer suggestions.

    Technology meets law…
