Guy Sues Google Because It Points To Articles He Claims Are Defamatory

"This will cost me hundreds of thousands of kronor if I lose," he said. "However, I will still go through with it and I hope that it can start a debate."A debate on what? Falsely blaming a third party for actions of someone else? He also claims that if he wins it means that "Google would have to take responsibility for everything they publish." Except that shows a fundamental misunderstanding of Google. Google isn't publishing these works. It's just indexing what's online.
If you ask someone where the nearest McDonald's is, and then you get food poisoning from McDonald's, you don't blame the guy you asked who told you where it was.
Oh, and where did he get the idea to sue Google? Of course, from the ridiculously bad Italian court ruling against Google, which will almost certainly be tossed out on appeal.
