Fransen hebben het regelmatig aan de stok met Google en vinden nu zelfs dat Google hun samenleving aan het veramerikaniseren is:
"I am not anti-American, far from it," Mr. Jeanneney, 62, said in an interview in his office in the library's new headquarters overlooking the Seine river. "But what I don't want is everything reflected in an American mirror. When it comes to presenting digitized books on the Web, we want to make our choice with our own criteria."
"Specifically, he fears that Google's version of the universal library will place interpretation of French and other Continental European literature, history, philosophy and even politics in American hands. This, he says, represents a greater peril than, say, American movies, television or popular music".
Tja, het blijven chauvinistische Fransen ;-)
