Danny,

Here is the SEOmoz post on Google Audio, it was actually some guys from PlumberSurplus.com that went to the Google Irvine office and posted a guest blog on SEOmoz.

Thanks!

I love the Google.be story - its just funny from every angle..

Hey. I think many people have mistunderstood the ruling. I think the main issue is that while their news are free, the Belgian newspapers archives are *not* free. And I think they could not find a way to get those news out of the Google cache once they're not free any more.
I tried to explain this here.
