ServersCheck BVBA, a company based in Belgium sued Google last year claiming that  Google's Suggest feature drove people to the pirated version of their network monitoring software. However, a couple of days back a court in Belgium dismissed the lawsuit. This lawsuit was filed in May 2006. The Belgium company wanted Google to modify Suggest. They were not seeking any kind of financial damages.

The report by ITWorld says:
On March 1, the Commercial Court in Leuven, Belgium, dismissed the suit, saying Google can't be found liable for finding Web pages that may be involved in illegal activity based on search terms. The court also rejected an argument the Suggest feature offered a misleading advertisement, since that's not the intended function of Suggest, said Trevor Callaghan, Google's senior product counsel for Europe.
