Google supports fight against child pornography

Google has announced a stronger fight against child pornography and # abuse on the Internet. As in the real world, there are also those dark corners of the internet, things happen in the criminal: In 2011 received the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s (NCMEC’s) Total Notes to 17.3 million photos and videos, which probably represent things who could look at the healthy person as child abuse.

This is a quadrupling of numbers that prevailed in 2007. Google stressed that it was important to tackle it and therefore parents, teachers and businesses to help fight this problem. Sexual abuse of children is a global problem, against which we must tackle globally, says Google.

Since 2006, working with other technology companies working to develop technical solutions. Further $ 5 million to set more supportive now available to imagery that child abuse is to exterminate. This sum will go to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the Internet Watch Foundation.

Support also get similar organizations in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia and Latin America. Since 2008 we use hash technology to highlight known pictures, so tracking down copies of these images on the Internet is possible. Each image is given a unique ID, a digital fingerprint and wanders into a database.

This database allows companies to charities and law enforcement to better tackle this content on the internet. Google also announced that another $ 2,000,000 would have been the Child Protection Technology Fund provided so that you can still develop more effective technologies.

On the subject of openness, Google has a statement: one is in business with the provision of information – but there is information that should never have been created and made available – and I’ll sign.
No rush as image but display against potential offenders (ie without the presence of a Strafttat =)? 😉

Clearly, child pornography and maltreatment is a hot topic, and the suffering that is associated with it a terrible thing. Among other things, as horrible as it may sound, the issue is, however, like to also exploited (see Zensursula), precisely because virtually every “yes” when he hears screams anti-child pornography.

My personal opinion is not so great if Google co-developed with a Hashingtechnlogie that allows data to disappear from the Internet (or at least the Google database). It will not take too long until the first companies to governments and despots will require to use this technique to remove inconvenient data from the network. Then, too, in the story were quickly Zensursula the first representatives of the media industry since that had rubbed his hands. Did I get that about right?
“This picture goes into a database”
Google is now making an extra database on the subject?
And does not this then what? available?
There is also some company?
And it still hangs the cloak of innocence to?
How to get ran there?

And the whole still publish?
Honestly, it’s hardly stupid.
