Google Belgium Homepage, Dreadfully Sad
Google finally complied to Belgian's court order completely. After removing several sites from Google.be and Google News, they show the text of the court order on Google.be.
"Also order the defendant to publish, in a visible and clear manner and without any commentary from her part the entire intervening judgment on the home pages of 'google.be' and of 'news.google.be' for a continuous period of 5 days within 10 days of the notification of the intervening order, under penalty of a daily fine of 500,000,- € per day of delay."
Google Belgium homepage now looks like a big wound on the face of the Internet.
