Google Maps Accused of Unfair Competition in France

A French company is taking Google Maps to court for unfair competition, seeking 706,000 dollars in damages from the US-based Internet giant, a judicial official said Wednesday. Bottin Cartographes has lodged a complaint with the Paris commercial court against Google France and its parent company Google Inc. for providing free web mapping services to some businesses.
