French court decision against Google

On Friday, 18 December 2009, a Paris court has ruled against Google in a lengthy copyright infringement case filed by a French publisher, La Martinière, and later joined by the French Publishers Association and French authors group SGDL.

The French court ordered Google to pay 300,000 EUR in damages and interest to the French company. The court stated that Google was infringing the copyright of the publishers' books by scanning excerpts (‘snippets’) and including these in its Google Book Search results. As part of the ruling, Google is further requested to pay 10,000 EUR each day until it removes the snippets.

Unhappy with the verdict, Google, reportedly, has plans to appeal the ruling.

Custom Designed and Built Kitchen Cabinets

Here is a photo of the recently completed Kitchen cabinet work. I designed, built and installed these just before Thanksgiving.
They are white paint with aging glaze and a beaded edge. My Facebook page shows the entire collection of cabinets and my website will show all of the cabinet work I have done in the next few weeks.

Cherry Corner Bookcase

Here is a custom cabinet project for a corner of a living room that I designed and built in Cherry. It goes with a second piece that holds a large screen TV. The room has high ceilings and the large size allows for plenty of storage.
