The Blacklist: Google’s Response to Defamation Conviction

Google, Google, Google: What have you done to piss the French off?

Only some days ago, a Paris court convicted US search engine giant Google and its chief executive, Eric Schmidt, of defamation over results from its “suggest” function. The new function, which suggests options as you type in a word, brought up the words “rapist” and “satanist” when the plaintiff’s name was typed into the search engine, legalis.net reported.

The court ordered Google to make a symbolic payment of one euro in damages and take measures to ensure they could be no repeat of the offense.
