If You Can’t Google It, It Doesn’t Exist

Filed under: News — lmwalker @ 9:33 am

Is Google’s image search going away?

The type of search with which Perfect 10 took issue is Google’s “Image Search” function, which returns a page with tiny images — known as thumbnails — that fit the searcher’s query . . .

The judge ruled that because Google receives advertising money from offering search functions, it is not entitled to the same level of free use of the images as other entities would be . . .

The judge found, however, that Google did not violate Perfect 10’s copyrights by linking to pages that Perfect 10 claims are using its images without permission.

I think Google should simply delete all database information related to Perfect 10. Sweet revenge.

  1. I’m surprised you don’t use http://www.prolifesearch.com … Brian mentioned it last night, and a portion of the proceeds from searches goes to prolife organizations, currently:
         Priests for Life
         Human Life International
         American Life League
         EWTN
         Population Research Institute
         Project Rachel
         Sisters of Life
         Human Life Alliance
         The Women’s Center of Chicago
         Couple to Couple League
         Children of the Rosary

    Its powered by Google, so you get the same results you would if you googled your search.

  2. I found 2 firefox/mozilla plugins for the search engine, and I missed one of the other organizations they support (seems like no one apologizes anymore for double-posts, so my apologies for the double-post)…

         Apostolate for Family Consecration (“Catholic Familyland”)

    You can also recommend a pro-life charity via email, and it lists the criteria by which a pro-life charity is defined as such:
         1. Performs, or donates to groups that perform, activities that directly support a “culture of life” as that term is defined in the moral teachings of the Catholic Church.
         2. Does not partake in, advocate or suggest violence as a means of supporting a “culture of life.”
         3. Is preferably an organization with a Catholic credo.

    Thanks, Brian, I do a ton of searches a day. :0)
