Not in the courts where I live..and in whose jurisdiction most of my images live on the servers..
right. But AFAIK no one has until now dragged them to courts in places outside U.S., for the scraping they do. Even if anyone manages to win against google outside U.S. (meaning they would make it very difficult by doing everything possible to get the verdict in their favor), all they would do is to stop displaying those knowledge engine elements like carousels, short answers, knowledge graphs etc. in only that jurisdiction or country. This is the approach that they currently adopt for Youtube and I am sure it would be extended to everything else.
