Google Settles UK "Defamation" Suit, Agreeing To Remove Malicious Links by Greg Sterling sums up the actual settlement pretty well but for those who read this site, I bet you'll find it ironic that during a live BBC TV news report, the bus drove by outfitted in Penguin gear.

The case itself is pretty significant being that Google never enjoys removing results from their search listings by hand. So this is a very significant case.

Chris Silver Smith said on Twitter he was suppose to be an expert witness and give testimony on it, but it just settled.

I wonder if he was responsible for the Penguin drive by. ;-p
