Google is Censored in 25% of Countries in Which It Operates

We Brazilians should be celebrating: we have unrestricted access to all – absolutely everyone – the services that Google offers on the internet. However, there is a huge amount of users who do not have this privilege. According to post published today Rachel Whetstone, vice president of global communications and public relations, Google has restrictions of access in 25% of countries in which it has operations.
“The censorship on the web is a growing problem,” wrote Rachel. “More than 24 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute of every day. This creates big challenges for governments used to control the print media and radio / television. “The executive also says that governments that censor Google sites – or any other site that is not committing crimes, obviously – are contrary to Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which guarantees freedom of opinion and expression.
Google says the search is the service, the company’s own policies are less restrictive. In some countries, such as Germany and France, they follow local laws that prohibit the display of certain content, then this is done in local versions of the browser (Google.de and Google.fr), complete with a message stating how many search results They were omitted.
An intermediate character would be the company’s publishing platforms such as YouTube, Blogger and Picasa Web. The company tries to provide all the tools to inappropriate content is flagged in this way and revised. No wonder that there are people reviewing what is published on Google services for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Finally, the advertising-related products are those with the most restrictive policies.”Why are commercial products which are intended to generate revenue.”
A report somewhat interesting about how Google ranks its products according to the policies that are adopted for each of them. Scary, however, it is to think that even with so many assaults to prevent cruel censorship – like China – 25 out of a hundred countries in which Google operates choose to indiscriminately censor the site.
