Google Joins Microsoft In Blocking Child Porn Across The Web

3

We rarely happen to see Microsoft and Google working on something together. Last time, we saw them together to for patent issues and then for PRISM spying scandal. Today, Dailymail reported that Google has agreed to block child porn related links from its search results. Google will now prevent depraved images and videos from appearing on its search results, and they will expand this blockage to 156 other languages in 6 months.

‘We’ve fine-tuned Google Search to prevent links to child sexual abuse material from appearing in our results.’

Microsoft will also make similar restrictions on its Bing search engine. While Microsoft will be providing the technology called PhotoDNA that will allow officials to automatically find child porn images across the web, Google has developed breakthrough technology that will allow illegal videos to be ‘tagged’ so that all duplicate copies can be removed across the internet.

Good job by both Microsoft and Google!

    About time to start looking to other search engines. Not because I have ever looked up child porn or care to, its just that this is the first to becoming China basically.

      Child Porn is bad, and absolute freedom and anonimity enables bad people to remain bad and do bad things, Microsoft and Google are making the internet a better place, and China isn’t such a bad model either, if anything, it’s safer and ”cleaner and nicer” than most of the other world’s internet.
