Legal "Google has filed a brief at a federal court in Florida defending the file-hosting site Hotfile in its case against the MPAA. The search giant accuses the movie companies of misleading the court and argues that Hotfile is protected under the DMCA's safe harbor. Indirectly, Google is also refuting claims being made by the US government in the criminal case against Megaupload." Obviously, Google isn't really defending Hotfile or MegaUpload here - they're defending themselves by proxy.

Don't know what's with the Google hate. Are you some kind of Microsoft fanboy mad that your company is no longer relevant?

There are always ways to put a negative spin on things, but I have no reason to believe Google doesn't do what they think is best for the user. If it's not, then they'll fix it. I don't see how any worse Google is from anyone else. They certainly have never done anything illegal intentionally, otherwise they would lose lawsuits all the times.

If you want to talk illegal, just try changing your search engine in Internet Explorer. It's really fucking well hidden. I don't understand how they can get away with this without being sued for antitrust, again.
