Google’s chilling impact on free speech

Google is now in partnership with a site called Chilling Effects that allows anyone to submit urls that should be blocked for alledged violations of some law or other. To unblock the sites one has to provide a defence, live in the US and give ones name and address. Wow! What this means is that anyone who wants to block something that they don’t agree with can do so 9as long as hilling Effects agrees of course) and that you have little chnace of righting the situation even by giving your name and address. Don’t worry though, even if they don’t unblock the sites they will know your name and where you live!
