Google has been caught in the middle of free speech vs. censorship issues. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act states that if a company removes information from the internet when requested, they cannot be held liable.

Google has followed this policy, says co-founder Larry Page, but it has nevertheless sparked controversy.
