Diego and Argentina search engines


There is an interesting article on OpenNet site that is being discussed at Slashdot now.

Complying with court decisions Yahoo and Google search engines have blocked searching for many celebreties for argentine users.

You can compare searches for Diego Maradona on Yahoo! Argentina and Yahoo! Mexico to see the difference.

It is interesting that while the court ordered to remove search results that are considered pornographic or defamatory to Maradona himself and thirty-three members of his family, search engines decided to block anything related to Maradona, rather than dedicating substantial resources to figure out whether individual search results meet court requirements.

And don't worry, BA Expats is still listed :).
