A German regulator handed Google a victory on Friday as it said it would not pursue a complaint brought against the internet search engine operator by a group of publishers for giving users access to their news articles. Several publishers including Axel Springer and Burda had banded together in a group called VG Media to demand Google pay them for making their online articles available to the public. Under German legislation that came into effect just over a year ago, publishers can prohibit search engines and similar services from using their news articles beyond very short excerpts.
