Lawsuit Idea: Defamatory Search Results
This Australian guy won over $200,000 suing Google for delivering results associating him with the mob. The judge explained the jury verdict by saying Google search results are just like publishing a newspaper:
Google Inc. is like the newsagent that sells a newspaper containing a defamatory article. While there might be no specific intention to publish defamatory material, there is a relevant intention by the newsagent to publish the newspaper for the purposes of the law of defamation.
