France and germany introduced laws to cash them, cash those Reader services.

I've never heard this before. Link to the news, please?
Also, if this is the case, why didn't Google close Reader just in those countries? It's trivial to implement and would show citizens effects of those laws.

Oh, this law. I'm pretty sure it affects Google News and snippets in Google search results, rather than RSS, where publishers determine what to give away themselves.
