I can see how the companies need to choose to oppose local governments on this, which granted isn’t a small thing to do, but thinking of why this man was arrested and the role google played any understanding has quickly faded away to make place for a combination of disappointment, injustice, all-they-need-is-money and so on.
I suppose google fears being banned from India, a country which obviously has more than a slight interest in keeping google active there.
I wish acts like these would cost a company more than just some bad PR. Then again I’ve been wishing for the music industry to see the light for years now.
Closing words to google : for shame!!
