"U.S.-based Internet portal Yahoo! intends to ignore a French judge's
ruling that it block Web surfers in France from an auction site where
Nazi memorabilia is sold.

"Yahoo attorney Greg Wrenn said late Monday that France has no
jurisdiction in the case. He said Yahoo, which is the world's most
popular Internet portal, will ignore the decision unless a U.S. court
enforces it."
