Google Defies Order That It Publish Adverse Belgian Ruling - New York Times

More like Microsoft every week... 

The earlier decision required Google to stop displaying summaries of French- and German-language articles from Belgian newspapers. Google faces a fine of 500,000 euros ($640,000) for every day it fails to comply with the order to publish the decision. It said it planned to fight the order, issued Friday, as part of a broader argument, set for November, in which it will seek to overturn the initial ruling.

“We will now further appeal this measure because we believe it is disproportionate and unnecessary, given the extensive publicity the case has received already, especially while its substance has yet to be debated in court,” Google said in a statement.
