The producer of "The World According to Bush" has taken legal action against Google for distributing the film for free, becoming the latest media company to seek compensation for lost business on the Internet.

Flach said its film was accessible for free on Google Video France through a simple click, as a stream or a download, and according to Google's own sources, had had in excess of 43,000 hits in "a very short period."
