Google Not Happy With CNET

by , Comments

John and Philipp point to a News.com article (about Google's search for a chef) that mentions that Google is not talking with CNET/News.com writers for about 11 more months. Why? It seems that Google is upset with a recent story that included personal info (found via Google) about Eric Schmidt.

As Battelle correctly points out and I agree with 100 percent with, the personal info in the article is available either in Google's own database or legally, in specialized (Invisible Web and proprietary) databases.

Actually, if most people in the U.S. knew what a good researcher could find (legally) in proprietary and public record databases they would be blown away.

Seems strange for Google to be upset about information found on and via the web, if that indeed was what the source of the complaint was about.
