Tough Critics in Brazil October 3, 2007

Posted by David Card in Media.

Am I missing some connection here?

    Facing complaints in Brazil about offensive content, Google Inc. in August removed ads from its social-networking service called Orkut…The move came after a Brazilian nonprofit group, SaferNet, lodged a complaint with a Brazilian advertising body.
    SaferNet has alleged that Orkut contains child pornography and other illegal content on some users’ pages. Google says it removes such images when it becomes aware of them.

Ads = kiddie porn? That’s a bit of an extreme view, isn’t it? Or was Google accepting ads it probably shouldn’t have? More details, please.
