Protection from copyright infringement claims from third parties for Google and other search engines.

Posted on: January 12, 2010

There has been an amendment tabled which would allow search engines to reproduce web content within results, as long as they direct to the source material.

This amendment, if it passed unchanged, would amended the existing Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988.
