Google Maps Charged With Unfair Competition In France For Daring To Be Free

Once again, we get to see the entitlement culture at work — this time over in France. JohnForDummies points us to the news that a French company, Bottin Cartographes, is suing Google over its Google Maps offering, because Google lets companies use its web mapping services for free (how dare they!). Bottin Cartographes, on the other hand, offers a similar service that it charges for. Apparently, it seems to think that “competition” itself is “unfair competition.” Why should Google have to charge just because this other company has a bad business model? We’re back to companies declaring felony interference with a business model.
