be unlawful<http://www.courthousenews.com/2009/07/30/Eleven-Word_Press_Snippets_by_Danish_Firm_May_Violate_Copyright.htm>.
Media monitoring company Infopaq International searches newspaper articles

practice was challenged by the DDF, a group representing newspaper
interests, as infringing their members' copyright. The court has referred
the issue back to national courts to determine whether copyright laws in
each country will be subject to the ruling. The full
available at the European Court of Justice Web site."
