Re: Bad bargaining

Google should have offered to simply remove all Getty images from search results. Then Getty would have paid Google to put them back in.

Google falls under the definition of "significant market power" in Eu monopoly law parlance. Your suggestion would be equivalent to 10% annual turnover fine.

It is good they now have people that actually have a bit more clue advising them instead of people like you (they tried to use tactics like this initially > 5 years ago).
