According to DMeurope, Google has started removing AFP content from Google News, after the French news agency filed a $17.5m law suit for copyright infringement.

Smart, decisive move by Google. They have plenty of other news sources and if AFP doesn’t have the sense to see the reach Google News brings them, pull it off.

From DMeurope:

Google has said it is to remove content from Agence France Presse, the French newswire, from its own news aggregation service, Google News.

The move is in reaction to the company launching legal action against the search engine last week accusing Google of copyright infringement for including AFP story headlines and prcises on Google news. The company is seeking $17.5m in damages and the removal of AFP content from the site.
