Google Places Removes Business Reviews from Third-Party Local Sites

Google Places, the popular service that features pages for millions of local businesses across the country, made a major move last week by removing snippets of customer reviews featured on its site that were taken from third-party local sites such as TripAdvisor, Yelp and CitySearch.

The change was welcomed by the affected local sites, which have argued that their reviews were proprietary. Moving forward, Google Places will only feature reviews written by its own users.
