A friend came across this the other day; I thought it was interesting.

It'll be a while before google turns evil though, so alternative search engines might not be widely accepted for a while.

I dont think google was ever really 'good' to begin with. Sure google does a lot of cool stuff, but remember they're still a company and their goal to make a prophet. The cool things that google does is because it is in their best interest to keep their PR up. So far google has never really done anything 'bad' per say, but they haven't done anything good either. Sure they opposed sopa, but only because it was in their best interest. So of course they're not going to stand up against copyright laws, because it would be costly and they wouldn't really gain anything from it.

I'm not sure what you guys expected. It's the law. They've been doing this for years anyways.

Even github has to remove repos when they receive DMCA take down notices. The problem isn't the company, since they can't do anything about it, it's the laws.
The glass is neither half-full nor half-empty; it's merely twice as big as it needs to be.
