Banned by Google?

Their are always two sides to a story, so I am was hesitant to post this today, but I think it's important for companies that built new technology to be able to stand on their own two feet. When you are introducing some search algorithms that may in fact be better than what the biggest search engine out their, you should probably expect resistance. A startup kozoru has been banned from using the Google API and is one of the first companies that had built some search tools that has been banned.

Their are a lot of other small players culling Google's data so either they scared Google or Google must have found their utilization of the API going way beyond the intended purpose and license allowances. [loneronin.typepad.com]
