solanum writes: The Australian Federal Court have found Google guilty of providing misleading links in its search results. They have been found responsible for Adwords based around four companies names, purchased by rival companies to take their search results. A Google statement said "Google AdWords is an ads hosting platform and we believe that advertisers should be responsible for the ads they create on the AdWords platform." But the court disagreed. The origin of this case goes back some time and was covered in 2007.
