This is amusing. And how two-faced Google is. Right now they are resisting a DoJ subpeona for two months of search engine activity so DoJ can guestimate how much search activity is for child pornography. Meanwhile in the People's Republic of China, Google has agreed to make its search results more transparent to government surveillance.
I have to ask Google one question, why fight for civil liberties in the United States but not in the PRC? Is it perhaps because in the US you could be jailed but not tortured like in the PRC? Or like Eason Jordan's CNN in Saddam's Iraq, they want to stay in the PRC market and are willing to allow the government snoop, arrest, and convict citizens who do not share the official party line to keep that market share? Or is it simpler, that Google sees the PRC as a friend while viewing the United States as an opponent?
Until this apparent contradiction is answered then Google will be in the camp of fellow-travelers. And everyone should treat Google with caution since Google may turn you over to totalitarian regiemes unless you like kiddy-porn in the United States then you are safe because Google will protect you.
