…en reproduisant sur son site Google News des titresdâ€™articles et de courts extraits dâ€™articles, Google reproduit et communique au public des oeuvres protÃ©gÃ©es par le droit dâ€™auteur…
Ã tort que Google estime pouvoir se prÃ©valoir de lâ€™accord des Ã©diteurs de site
In English: by reproducing on its site Google News, titles and extracts of articles, Google reproduces and communicates to the public works protected by copyright. Google should have asked for an agreement with the site editors before publishing!
What I wonder about now, is the fact that Le Soir (part of CopiePresse) publishes an RSS feed to which you can subscribe with both your own desktop RSS-reader, but also with the ever popular Bloglines (and Google NewsReader, etc…) .
If (at least) one person subscribes to the feed, Bloglines starts monitoring the feed for you, even when you’re offline. When you get back online, Bloglines presents you with all the article extracts and article titles that you might have missed. This means that everything that was published on the RSS-feed during your absence was copied to the servers at Bloglines, stored there, and then published. Only thing that is different here to Google, is that the publishing only happens to the people who are subsribed… or not?
