Google loses appeal in Belgium

Posted on Sunday, Sep 24 2006 @ 00:01 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Earlier this week Google lost a bid to overturn a Belgian court decision that requires it to publish an earlier ruling on its website.
The world's most popular Web search engine faces a daily fine of 500,000 euros ($640,900) for not posting the September 5 decision on its Belgian Web site.

It said on Friday it still refuses to post the ruling.


Google had argued that the posting was unnecessary given the widespread publicity of the case.
More info at Reuters. On Friday the search giant still refused to publish the ruling but on Saturday it appeared on the Belgian Google site.
