Google "Google is considering ditching the U.S. Chamber of Commerce out of frustration with its support for legislation that would force Internet companies to police websites that peddle pirated movies and fake Viagra. The rumblings of a defection - a potentially serious blow to one of Washington's most powerful lobbies - come weeks after Yahoo left the Chamber in October, largely over its support of Sen. Patrick Leahy's online piracy bill, the PROTECT IP Act." What, the US Chamber of Commerce is a front for the pharmaceutical and content industries? I'm shocked.

Rather than being completely arbitrary about what laws it follows and what it ignores, it should merely be consistent and follow all of them.

You are overly emotional on this topic.
It's Google's right to strongly disagree with a law and fight it. And if you have any proof of Google "ignoring"* then you should contact the appropriate authorities, otherwise stop making s***t up.

* - if you ignore the law - you're breaking it.
