  • Google Loses In
    Belgium Newspaper Case

    A Belgium court has found that Google did violate copyright when including
    material from several Belgian newspapers in its search index. Google may have
    to pay a fine, but the ruling is far more positive for the company. Google can
    continue to index content without explicit permission. NOTE: The story…
  • Social Media
    Marketing Is Ethical!

    There seems to be a lot of misconception that social media marketing isn’t
    ethical. Almost daily, I come across bloggers who denounce SMM as spam or
    suggest that social media marketers are poisoning the community well. In
    reality, they either aren’t properly educated or perhaps only see the "bad…
  • SingingFish.com
    Now Redirects To AOL Video Search

    Gary Price reports that SingingFish.com now redirects to AOL Video. AOL
    purchased SingingFish.com from Thomson Multimedia in November 2003. In June
    2005, AOL revamped their AOL Video Search, which included having results from
    SingingFish. Now, SingingFish is set up as a 301 redirect (permanent redirect)

  • Google Search
    Results Now May Display Malware Warnings

    Google Operating Systems reports that Google has changed the way they handle
    warning searchers of sites that may contain malware on them. It notes that a
    search on beautiful free screensaver currently brings up a result from
    elitesavers.com that has a message from Google reading: "This site may harm
  • Google Maps
    Adds "Report Incorrect Data" Link

    Mike Blumenthal reports that Google has added an easier way to report
    inaccurate data found within Google Maps. For any unverified business listing,
    Google will show a link that reads "report incorrect data" that takes you to a
    page to easily notify Google of the problem. For example, currently this…
  • Sproose – A
    Social Search Engine

    Sproose is another social search engine where you get to vote for your
    favourite websites/pages, and to that extent it’s very similar to previous
    social search engines that I’ve looked at recently. It’s got the double ‘o’ in
    the name which always helps, and uses terminology that sounds familiar,

    designed to allow you to hum a few bars of a tune into them, and then they’ll
    tell you what the song is. These are Midomi and Humming Search from Nayio.
