Intellectual Asset Management has an update on litigation against Google in France. Google Books, Google Images, and Google Videos have all been targeted in separate lawsuits. The courts have been going every which way in terms of whether to apply French or United States law, and on how to analyze Google’s indexing and search services. The tl;dr version is that in the most recent case, involving Google Videos, the court applied French law and held Google not liable as a “passive” rather than an “active” actor, but that this state of affairs could change in light of pending French legislation.

    But see this IFFRO release, and the French sources it links to, which would seem to suggest otherwise.
