Censorship And The Internet Rory Jimenez, Jill Wilkinson German Censorship Hate based or Holocaust denial sites are illegal and are therefore filtered out of searches. This censorship mainly affected White Nationalistic, Nazi, anti-semitic, and radical Islamic websites. French Censorship Similar laws exist that block certain sites from being displayed. Google complies with these laws by not including sites containing such material in its search results. YouTube Censorship By agreeing to the Terms Of Service, a user agrees not to post anything that may violate a copyright, or is pornographic. YouTube uses their terms of service to censor all incoming material, even if it is not caught immediately. Chinese Censorship There is governmental suppression of government complaints and specific events like the Tiananmen Square Massacre. sites supporting the independence movements of Tibet and Taiwan or the Falun Gong movement are also blocked. Great Firewall Of China All of the filtering mechanisms are collectively known as the Great Firewall of China. These censors can obviously be seen as contrary to Google’s motto “Don’t be evil”. Scientology Censors In 2002 Google was found to have censored websites that provided information about Scientology, in compliance with the United States' DMCA legislation. The DMCA complaint forced the Scientology sites to be censored. Summary Some of the censor can be viewed as unethical. Other types of censorship are a positive influence for society. Censorship varies widely by region and culture.
