Google off the Defamation Hook in Britain

Google scores a defamation victory abroad. A British court has ruled that Google is not liable for indexing defamatory web pages. As American internet lawyers know, this ruling is in line with Section 230 0f America's Communications Decency Act.

How broadly this is applied in the U.K. has yet to be seen but the ruling seems grounded in logic and reason.
