Google releases 'troubling' data on government requests to remove content


www.nydailynews.com...

Google pulled back the curtains on itself Sunday with the release of its latest “transparency report,” calling the results “troubling.”

The search giant’s report is the fifth of its kind, and details the number and kind of requests the company receives from governments around the world regarding the removal of user content.

This certainly should come as no surprise, but one can only wonder what information has been culled. Will there be a leak of some sort from someone inside Google that's seen enough to do so?

There are resources for doing so, yet there's also a strong force they must overcome, from governments and from inside Google. Omissions in information are just as powerful and false information.

They are a private company. They can put up links to penis enlarging sites for every result if they wish. They don't need warrants or due process to do as they please. You also don't have to use youtube, google etc.

My issue isn't with Google. My issue is with the nations "requesting" the elimination of information; especially the US. What have they requested to be retracted?

Do you have a need for a penis enlargement? Try Googling it.

I tried googling it. Didn't enlarge anything. I must try clicking on those dollar signs on the sites.

Yes inside Google as well. They claimed to have been an open resource, yet now admit to culling links to information at the request of governments around the world.

A lot of people would like to, but only gov'ts have the clout to force them.

I read a list a few months back. Most of it was from India and the report I read was Indian.

I keep an eye on defamation cases against google. I hope to see some people win, but only because it is easy to tip the search listings against someone with no recourse to justice at all.

From what I've seen, it is becoming more common to try and force google to censure it's search results by small players, but google so far seems safe.. in most countries.
