EU: Google zensiert fuer Europa

Auf den Wunsch von "auslaendischen Regierungen"- namentlich Deutschland und Frankreich- werden laut Bericht[1] eines Havard Studenten mehr als 110 Webseiten nicht mehr gefunden, wenn Google fuer einen mit der "falschen" Nationalitaet sucht. Erste Stimmen forden sogar schon, Google zu verstaatlichen. [1] http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/filtering/google/

Google excluding controversial sites
[...]
Absent from Google's French and German listings are Web sites that are anti-Semitic, pro-Nazi or related to white supremacy, according to a new report from Harvard University's Berkman Center. Also banned is Jesus-is-lord.com, a fundamentalist Christian site that is adamantly opposed to abortion.
[...]
The removed sites continue to appear in listings on the main Google.com site.
[...]
The duo found 113 excluded sites, most with racial overtones.
[...]
In the past, Germany has ordered Internet providers to block access to U.S. Web sites that post revisionist literature.
[...]
...Google replied by pledging to report future legal threats to the ChillingEffects.org site run by law school clinics.
[...]
One Google competitor and critic even suggested that the wildly popular search engine be transformed into a government-controlled "public utility."
[...]
Google refused to reply to a list of questions that CNET News.com sent via e-mail, including which sites have been delisted, how many sites have been delisted, what standards are used, and what other Google-operated sites have less-than-complete listings.
[...]
ccording to the Harvard report, some sites that Google does not list include 1488.com, a "Chinese legal consultation network," and 14words.com, a discount Web-hosting service and some conservative, anti-abortion religious sites. Those sites do not appear to violate either German or French laws.
[...]
Edelman, of Harvard's Berkman Center, suggests that Google find a way to alert users that information is missing from their search results.
