Google News Norway Removes Images (via e-Media Tidbits)

From the post:
"Since Google News launched its Norwegian site on Nov. 16 there has been strong pressure to stop Google from republishing using copyrighted images there.

The pressure coming from the Norwegian Media Businesses' Association (MBL) has been especially strong, as Tidbits mentioned earlier. Now it seems that Google has succumbed."

From the article:
<<At the moment, no pictures from MBL member sites appear on Google News Norway. The only remaining images are from sites that don't belong to MB members.>>
