Google (but not Google News) indexes Belgian newspapers again

Aoife White, an AP Business Writer, reports that Belgian French-language newspapers are back in Google. In a joint statement, Google and the newspapers’ copyright group Copiepresse said they had decided that Google could once again list the newspapers on the search engine.

But they are still in talks about Google News, one of the main parts of their dispute. “The Belgian French and German-language daily press publishers and Google Inc. intend to use a quiet period in the court dispute to continue their efforts to identify tangible ways to collaborate in the long term,” they said.
