Evidence mounts that Google's model is aligned with illegal activities: WSJ Page 1

The evidence continues to mount from highly respected sources that Google's business model is aligned with and tolerant of promoting illegal activities.
Today, if you want another high profile reminder that Google's business model is aligned with, and tolerant of, promoting illegal activities, go no further than Page One of TheWall Street Journal: "Media firms say Google benefited from film piracy."
This is just additional evidence that Google's entire business is aligned with doing whatever it takes to encourage clicks on their ads or their "keywords" because every such click is money to Google.
This story may be just the tip of the iceberg of evidence suggesting Google's business model irresponsibly favors/condones promoting illegal activity.
Another of my blogs: "MyDD unabashedly using non-neutral "Googlebombs" to skew search/election" highlights how Google routinely has turned a blind eye to obvious and widespread efforts to manipulate and misrepresent Google searches on information about politicians in public elections!
Another of my blogposts highlighted Google's lack of internal controls and complete lack of regard for the property rights of others: "Google's self-serving "innovation without permission."
Viacom and NBC recently asked Google-YouTube to pull down all the thousands upon thousands of illegally posted content of theirs from YouTube.
I also blogged on a very insightful Washington Post article on "Building a Googley workforce." My blog post was entitled "Googlentitlements" which helps people understand Google's pampered culture and why they may have such little regard for others.
I also blogged about Google's public "Search Peeping" and their blatant disregard for search privacy.
In sum, serious evidence continues to mount from a lot of respected sources that Google has little regard for the law or for other's property or privacy.
