AFP's Dispute With Google Has Unfortunate Results

Search Engine Guide has details of an unfortunate victim of the recent dispute between Google and AFP (a French based news service).

Google decided to respond to the extortion and stupidity of the lawsuit by actually winning the battle. Google's response? They stopped syndicating the news from sites using AFP of which this site is one. Not only is our AFP news not syndicated, but our editorials and independent news feeds are also blacklisted. Any news posted after Tuesday morning at 3am cannot be found on Google anywhere. It is a matter of time before the other services that ‘grab' our news follow suit.

The author represents Political Gateway.com and they rely heavily on AFP news. It appears that they no longer appear in Google News because Google removed all AFP content, regardless of the source or consequences.

In time the lawsuit will end, AFP will lose, Google and AFP will compromise and all will be as it was. Except for sites like this one who will lose financially and emotionally, as it always is when big business collide.
