Google is being accused of Censorship. This is a tough one... On one hand, the press should not be censored... On the other hand, no one complains if a company removes specific content (like child porn). Does a company have the right to limit what information they index, or is any removal of content breaking freedom of speech/press?

That's things like where Sony (who is currently being sued for it) put a virus on the music CDs so that if you played them on your home computer, it installed a backdoor... although, it is just SUPPOSED to stop you from copying it... the copying it part is the DRM.|

|Sarah||Gee, the google thing is tough. I mean, I think they probably have the right to censor as long as they say that they are GOING to do that. I can understand being pissed if you just got a surprise where some of the information was missing due to censorship and no one told you. |

|WILL POWER!||The Google thing isn't exactly censorship. They are choosing not to list certain sites now under their news section, and considering the content I wouldn't exactly call it news either.|
