French Court Preventing Greenpeace France From Displaying Crop Data On Google Maps

BoingBoing spotted an interesting case where a French court ordered Greenpeace France to remove a site using the Google Maps tool to display “locations of commercial, genetically engineered corn fields in France.” Greenpeace France overlaid an X in the spot of those corn fields. They have removed the site, but plan on appealing the order. “Greenpeace argues the online maps should not be censored because an EU law requires the French government to make the crop site information public anyway,” Xeni Jardin of BoingBoing writes.
