In what must rank as one of the most ironic and peculiar of online legal manoeuvres, Copiepress – the copyright group for French and German newspapers that last year convinced a court to bar Google (NSDQ: GOOG) News from excerpting their stories – may now sue the European Commission… for linking to papers’ online articles. Two EC sites are breaching copyright, Copiepress alleges. It’s asked a court to appoint an expert to conduct an initial assessment, and may then file a full complaint. Not only is Copiepress based in Brussels – the Belgian capital city is also headquarters to the EC. A legal action challenging deep-linking? Sounds like 1999. Via Bloomberg.
