Google To Give 3 Months Notice Of Rejecting AdWords In France [nytimes.com]
Google has pledged to overhaul its rules and procedures for blocking certain advertisers from buying “sponsored links” on its search engine as part of a settlement with French authorities announced Thursday.

As part of the deal with French Competition Authority, Google agreed to adopt conditions, including a three-month notification period, when it rejects some ads from appearing next to its search results in France.

Another example on why Google policy makers need to get out of thier offices and look at Google from the street.

As someone who's spent a limited amount of time in Canada and most of my life in the UK, I'd say consumer law back home is a lot better. For instance, EU-wide there is a minimum 12-month guarantee on electronic purchases.

3 months notice seems like a fair practice for Google to have, for them and for their customers.

NY Times is wrong, I spoke with Google. They have to make the changes in france for specific ads, but no where else. They have NO plans on changing their policies elsewhere.

I cannot reconcile this bit of the article@

The specific conditions apply only in France, and concern only ads for tools aimed at helping drivers avoid speeding tickets.


with this:

the French Competition Authority got Google to modify its contractual rules on a worldwide basis
