Techcrunchissa kerrotaan Google Newsin neuvottelevan Iso-Britanniassa lehtitalojen kanssa artikkeleiden lisensoimisesta. Kirjoittaja huomauttaa, että tämä ajaa Googlen tavallaan pattitilanteeseen:

It’s a catch 22. If Google starts running ads on Google News now it would only strength the case of those media companies arguing that Google News infringes on copyright. And yet already the cost of these deals will be driving up costs for Google. Google will want to find a way to recoup these costs without having to pay thousands of additional media outlets for the right to syndicate content.
