The decision got an immediately impact to several Danish companies, with a large international potential, who develop search engine technology.
Newsbooster.com is not, and will not accept to be defined as, a Newsservice in direct competition with Danish Newspapers by a Danish one-man judge.
Newsbooster.com find the decision wrong since it not in any way defines the difference between search engines like Google, Lycos or Fast and Newsbooster.com.
The case involves more than just Newsbooster.com, and is a threat for Search Engine Technology.
Because of that has the board decided to wait for the justification that opens the possibility for Danish and International technology companies to intervene in the case, which will be brought up in a higher court instance in Copenhagen.
If Newsbooster.com had appealed the decision from the lower bailiff’s court it would not have been possible to our colleagues in the business to intervene the case as an active part.
Newsbooster.com continues our Danish news services, without the 20 newspapers involved in the case. However until the justification is through decision we accept medias who takes contact and want to be excluded from our search services.
Newsbooster.com continues their International expansion. Newsbooster see the case as a local Danish phenomena affecting lesser than 0,5% of the International search services of Newsbooster.com.
Based on that Newsbooster.com are looking out for local partners abroad to corporate with developing local Newsbooster.com versions in their region. As a local partner you will get access to the whole technology and is involved in the future development.
