According to CNet, a federal judge has ruled that Google’s image search feature likely violate U.S. copyright law because it displays small thumbnail versions of the images.

It looks like Google is in hot water because of two particular features.

First, the search company apparently receives AdSense advertising revenue from some of the photo-pirating sites, and second, Google’s image search has an option for mobile phones.

That latter feature means that you can get the same content, that Perfect 10 (the claimant) sells as monthly subscription to mobile users, for free.

Google did win one key point…

[U.S. District Judge A. Howard] Matz said that the “framing” feature of the company’s image search, which displays a thumbnail of the image above a rendering of the original page, did not directly infringe Perfect 10′s copyright.
