"We are committed to helping content owners fight piracy across Google's tools, and we will continue to work with them so that they can make the best use of our state of the art copyright protection tools," the company said in a statement.

Lots of people knock the French, but they are very good at supporting France and their laws and traditions, they don't roll over for corporations, or even the EU.
I could add, and support their way of life... Mondays no good, recovering from 'le weekend', Tuesdays and Wednesdays 'OK we will work', Thursday 'what are we doing this weekend', Friday 'oh it's the weekend !'
