A compelling writeup.

"To some people, a hard compromise may not feel as satisfying as a withdrawal on principle, but we believe it's the best way to work toward the results we all desire."

I am unimpressed. A censored Google is better than none at all? Mmm... nah, there are other search engines that can do the same job. If Google's going to enter this market, they really should stick to their principles.

Your commentary expresses am important point, but there was no purpose other than for some self-serving special-interest to include an attack on the Scientology reliigon – although it would have been appropriate to stick to the point of its protecting theft of its materials. Stick with the issue at hand – Google. There's enough chaos and iinhumanity in this world for you to contribute to it. Why didn't you report on more than 1 million Americans dead (including 159 children) made public by the one group that you (indirectly) attack. www.drexun.org for details.

I did not anywhere approve or disapporve of Scientology, as indeed that isn't the point right now. The point of mentioning Scientology is that they had a Google result removed, according to the US laws of DMCA.

An interesting one at that – which is that you are violating the DMCA by merely linking to material that violates the DMCA.

Wow, is that so? What about a plain text URL? :)

And what about a link with the nofollow attribute? =)
