Google announced that they have launched Google News for Israel last night. Google News Israel syndicates many Israeli news sources in Israel’s native language, Hebrew. My Hebrew isn’t that great, but if you want more information about Google News Israel and you can read Hebrew, visit the About Google News Israel page. Search Engine Journal notes that many publishers were “caught off guard” by this launch and they feel there are “copyright infringement” legal issues with Google News. SEJ also notes that Google did have an opt out policy in place prior to launching Google News Israel.
