Tough Critics in Brazil October 3, 2007Posted 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.
