AFP Sues Google News

The main reason why Google News was in Beta for more than 2.5 years now, was it could no way be a fully functional run-for-profit site and still continue to use news headlines and synopsis of newspapers and news sites across the globe, without paying any copyright for the same. Even though on most occasions, users will click on the links to open the actual host site, it's still an infringement on the copyright material by Google to display content and photos.

And now it looks like it will have to pay.
