The New York Times sat down, briefly, with Google co-founder Sergey Brin for a few elaborations on today’s events. For starters, Brin noted that the new policy was entirely Google’s idea, and the US government was not involved in any way. He also silenced whispers that Google would be releasing software for bypassing censorship. “I think those tools are going to come of their own accord. I don’t think we have to do anything,” he said.
Emphasis mine. Because I completely agree with that assessment. Which is incidentally why I think new business models should be found, rather than attempt to sue.
