Google News Breaches Copyright

Apparently a Brussels court has ruled that Google News breaches copyright law, and uses the material without the Authors consent.
"A Brussels court has ruled in favour of a group of Belgian newspapers which argued that the site, which lists links to news stories from around the world, used material without their consent, and ordered that the articles be taken down."

Apparently the group is also pursuing Yahoo! as well for their news service.

Here's the article.
