Court May Order Google to Censor 145;Torrent,146; 145;RapidShare - 'Gun','Firearm','weapon','knife',etc should also be censored as Google indirectly facilitates armed robberies/assault with deadly weapons/murder/etc. by failing to filter these terms.
- 'Alcohol', 'Drinking', 'Vodka', 'Wine', etc. should also be censored as Google indirectly facilitates public drunkeness, alcoholism, and drunk driving.
- 'Car', 'Automobile', etc. should be censored as Google indirectly facilitates hit and runs.
- 'Baseball' should also be censored, as part of baseball involves a bat, and people could use the bat as a weapon, so again, Google indirectly facilitates armed robberies/murder/etc.
- 'Temperature', 'Heat', 'Weather', etc. should be censored as Google indirectly facilitates global warming/climate change...
Yea, mostly pretty absurd to even consider most of that, but it's more or less along the same line of thinking. Realistically, If this does infact happen, I wouldn't be surprised if terms like "MP3 player", "MP3", "AVI", "Winamp", "VLC", "Windows media player", "DAEMON tools", etc. all are gone after next, after all, by allowing people to find those things google facilitates people watching/listening/using pirated Movies/music/software.
Re: Court May Order Google to Censor 145;Torrent,146; 145;RapidS What's even more silly is that it doesn't appear to apply to the actual search.

French Supreme Court ruled that Google can be required to censor the search terms Torrent, RapidShare and Megaupload from its Instant and Autocomplete services.
Meh, minor inconvenience for the French at best, IMO. Besides, Google has been doing this for a year now.
said by TorrentFreak :
For Google, fighting the French case is a matter of principle. The search engine has already been filtering piracy-related terms from its Autocomplete and Instant services for more than a year, worldwide.
