I bet the music industry puts the clamp on Google over copyright laws so Google tries to do more to stop copyrighted music from being aired.
duhh ya think plastic, blatantly obvious 101 scenario - of course thats the reason....
Google sees government as the enemy and might be more reluctant to cooperate with it.
Perhaps - but that remains to be seen, their advertising industry is certainly pro democracy as to their long term goals we will not know as yet. I suppose the fundamentals question is: have the founders been corrupted by money and power and if so have they lost their founding principles? are they good guys? and if so in what sense, the survival of the human race can come down to decisions made by people with real power, Google has power, globally influencing power. In any case i believe Google is bound by the laws of the United States, as big as they may be they do have governing laws controlling them.
These agencies would, most likely, appeal to as many search engines as possible so they wouldn't see something on one search engine that isn't on another.
Bann one bann all, Google has a massively overwhelming market share so the ball starts there. Different search engines, different countries, you cant order a global bann for certain URL's on all search engines as yet.
