A lawmaker from New York yesterday filed a suit against Google Inc., accusing the company of profiting from illegal child pornography. Politician Jeffrey Toback says Google has paid links to child porn web sites.
The suit was filed in the Supreme Court in Mineola, and Toback states within it that “This case is about a multi-billion dollar company that promotes and profits from child pornography.” Google denied the claims.
In a statement, the company said: “When we find or are made aware of any child pornography, we remove it from our products, including our search engine. We also report it to the appropriate law enforcement officials…”
