Here is the problem Google has with the massive loss of moral capital attendant upon their agreement to censor search results in Communist China.
Google, the giant internet search company, is to lead industry opposition to new proposals from the European Commission to regulate online content.
The company, which last week said it would self-censor its Chinese search engine to appease the country’s government, objects to the commission’s proposals to extend regulations in the Television Without Frontiers directive (TWFD) to cover video content shown on the internet.
What principle is it that they want to assert to the European Commission again?
Worry not, however, the EeYew is both less efficient and less effectively draconian than the ChiComs.
As to resisting subpoenas for sample, aggregated, non-personal data from the US DoJ, Google’shanging tough.
