Recently the U.S. appeals court has rejected Perfect 10's (an adult website) claim of Google costing them $50 million million worth of suscriptions by displaying their images in google search results; violating copyrights and in the long run ruining Perfect 10.

Google) from accessing all or part of a website which is otherwise publicly viewable.
