Belgium Slaps Google With $43.2 Million Fine

Gary Price points to a Poynter.org report showing that Google has been fined €34 million (about $43,231,000 USD) for not removing all of the Belgian publisher’s content based on a court ruling. Google claims they could not find all the publishers and asked the publishers for help in identifying the content that has to be removed.
