Google der Handlanger des Staates?

In Großbritannien wurden wohl mehrere Youtube Videos, die eine legale Demonstation zeigen, auf Anfrage der Regierung gesperrt.


Wie kann es sein, dass sich Google in Europa zu Zensur zwingen lässt? Wie passt das mit Googles „Dont be evil“-Philosophie zusammen? Aber solche Werte wirft man halt schon mal über Bord, wenn es um das eigene Geld geht, nicht wahr?

You can also search by country to discover that Google, the owner of You Tube, has complied with the majority of requests from governments, particularly in the United States and the UK, not only to remove You Tube videos, but also specific web search terms and thousands of “data requests,” meaning demands for information that would reveal the true identity of a You Tube user. Google claims that the information sent to governments is “needed for legitimate criminal investigations,” but whether these “data requests” have been backed up by warrants is not divulged by the company.
