The paper explains that under the 1998 Child Online Protection Act, the Bush government has attempted to limit that which may be searched for and published on the Internet. The paper discusses how the government sought to obtain a list of what search terms are used by individuals that utilize search engines, in an attempt at limiting what they may or may not search. The paper relates that only Google has refused to transmit this consumer information to the government. The paper contends that it is essential that the privacy of users and their freedoms as stated in the Constitution are protected and maintained, and commends Google for wishing to protect the rights of the American citizen.
From the Paper:"Freedom of speech is a concept which is one of the foundations of the United States of America, the first amendment decreeing speech, press, and religion to be free of governmental hindrance. This concept however does not find itself fully exercised in reality, but in is rather limited by the very government which holds a constitution guaranteeing it. This gross display of hypocrisy and organizational dysfunction on the part of the United States Government extends to the internet as well. The government is directly involving itself in business matters on the internet which are directly related to the freedom of speech."
