Google Complies with Law, Excludes 'controversial' Sites

YDdraig writes "To conform with some French and German laws, Google has removed listings for over 100 sites which it believes to be anti-abortion,
pro-Nazi, white supremacist or anti-semitic. They're not keen to talk about it either, saying merely: 'As a matter of company policy we do not
provide specific details about why or when we removed any one particular site from our index.'" Noted from Declan's articles: This is Google.de and
Google.fr, and is done to be in compliance with those countries laws. Because, of course, not being able to talk about something makes it less
attractive right? And drugs being illegal makes it less attractive for kids too, right? *sigh*
