It's great you push for more free expression -- many people need to work on this all over the world and not just consider it settled, or slowly, the rights to expression risk to be gone.> Nicole will talk about our efforts> to be transparent with users,> such as our use of the Chilling> Effects website to highlight legal > requests to remove content and ourWhere is the link to legal requests in Google China search results, which are sometimes censored?> clear notification to users> whenever search results have> been censored.Where can these notifications be seen in Google China news and book search results, which are both partly censored?
Include censorship in trade negotiations. We believe that government-sponsored censorship is one of the largest barriers to making information more available online, and so it is vital for the U.S. Departments of State and Commerce and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative to make censorship a central element of our bilateral and multilateral trade talks.You are hurting the citizens who need to earn a living.They have little control over what their government does - but they need income.Regardless of how repressive their governments are - by not trading - it trickles down to the population who suffers even more

Google recently violated free-speech again in the US when it suspended the accounts of 7 anti-Obama bloggers and claimed it was an accident when the facts reveal that it was intentional. There's a campaign to hold Google accountable and demand they never do this again. See https://www.thepoint.com/campaigns/stop-google-censorship . If 300 bloggers join, maybe Google will issue a public apology.
Although I'm sure my comment will evoke an argumentative response from those who adhere to the idea of absolute freedom of expression, I will continue none the less.I believe that humanity is one interdependent organization and no one can survive in independence.The well being of the whole of mankind in which an individual may live a meaningful and healthy life requires some accommodation to the needs of the whole.Personal expression is perhaps the most influential power of an individual.The expression of the individual can both enhance the spirit of life or bring great harm.It is the right and responsibility of the whole, through institutions of justice, to set the parameters of expression which will both ensure that each individual may participate in a meaningful way with others and yet ensure that the right to self expression is not abused in a manner destructive to humanity.The only certain way that this can be achieved is through institutions of government.
Are Google saving money by letting people input their own information?The costs involved around converting paper records to digital records is huge. Does anyone know about them strategies behind this issue?
