Europe takes on Google, looks to Brazil with hope

FILE - In this Dec.6, 2011 file photo, the Google logo is seen on the carpet at Google France offices before its inauguration, in Paris. Publishers in France, Germany and Italy want their governments to impose a "news tax" on Google to save them from extinction, demanding a law that would charge the search engine small payments in exchange for links to stories. Google, in response, says it will cease to index the sites altogether, warning that the proposals do nothing to solve the industry's problems on the continent that invented the printing press.
