Dutch courts kill ease of use: Gaspedaal illegal. Google next?

The Dutch courts have decided that re-using publically available data is illegal in accordance with the database laws. This means that Gaspedaal, a website that aggregates second hand car data from a number of other websites (and is therefore the most used car searching site!) is no longer allowed to aggregate the data from sites that tell it not to.

Goes to show you how out of touch from reality judges really are.
