Google Facing $421 Million Damages From French Company [nytimes.com]
An Internet company in France says it will seek heavy damages from Google in what it says is the largest claim of its kind in Europe against the American giant.

The action, which the company, 1plusV, says it will bring on Tuesday at the Commercial Court of Paris, will raise issues about whether Google has unfairly shut out competitors. 1plusV says it will claim 295 million euros, or $421 million, in damages, based on income it believes it lost because of Google’s actions.

1plusV operates a family of search engines aimed at offering mainly French-speaking Web users targeted results in areas like law and music.

Bruno Guillard, the founder of 1plusV, said Google made some of his sites impossible to find through its search engine, thus taking away the ability of those sites to generate advertising revenue.
