Planet Google: One Company's Audacious Plan to Organize Everything We KnowSpain To Google: Anyone Can Potentially Censor Your Index: "The Spanish Data Protection Authority is treating Google not as an “intermediary” but as a “publisher” under Spanish law. That brings with it numerous burdens and obligations that potentially create a massive legal and privacy headache for Google. A similar thing happened recently in Italy where YouTube is now being classified and treated as a conventional TV broadcaster.

What’s at stake, simply put, is legal responsibility for whatever appears in Google search results — in other words the entire internet. This is much like a newspaper or magazine that bears legal responsibility for what shows up in its pages. In one of several Spanish cases Google is being asked to remove more than 100 newspaper articles that are allegedly libelous, although it’s not clear if libel has actually been proven rather than merely claimed."
