I was just thinking about a possible April Fool's headline, "Google's Brin Arrested By French For Cultural War Crimes" after reading the latest French-related set-back for his company, that of being for using Agence France Presse material in Google News. This follows on another trademark case loss in France, plus French president Jacques Chirac seeing Google's digitization project as a possible threat to Francophones and French culture. Stephanie Olsen at News.com has obviously been thinking the same thing and weighs in with own short recap in France vs. Google. From us on these subjects, see:
