CANBERRA, Feb 6 (Reuters) - Google Inc won a landmark court case on Wednesday when Australia's High Court ruled that it had not engaged in misleading behavior with its sponsored links and that it was not responsible for messages conveyed by paid advertisers.

The ruling helps Internet providers and search engines argue that they are not publishers, but simply carriers of information provided by third parties.
