Google reports ‘alarming’ rise in censorship by governments[LOL, they should know! Try getting the CLG Newsletter w. a Gmail account, and see what I mean.] 17 Jun 2012 There has been an alarming rise in the number of times governments attempted to censor the internet in last six months, according to a report from Google. Since the search engine last published its bi-annual transparency report, it said it had seen a troubling increase in requests to remove political content. Many of these requests came from western democracies not typically associated with censorship. UK police asked the company to remove five YouTube accounts for allegedly promoting terrorism. Google agreed.
