Google Inc. (GOOG) reached a deal with Belgian newspaper publishers, resolving a six-year copyright battle that had blocked the owner of the world’s most-used search engine from publishing links to local newspapers.

“We turn the page, we end the litigation and we’re starting afresh with a business partnership,” Thierry Geerts, managing director of Google Belgium, told reporters on a conference call today. “That’s the way we would like to work with publishers all over the world, that we can sit together and think together about how we can embrace the digital future.”
