Microsoft reaffirms stance against web ads: "The web should be clean and free of these obtrusive, virus laden, obnoxious commercials"
All I'm trying to say is that's easy to attack something that is not part of your own business model. Google doesn't sell software for a living. Of course they don't care about software patents. Even more so, they profit the most if everything is "free". Well not really free, but paid through ads.

I was always under the impression that hate speech is not merely a regular speech, but usually implies an instigation to harm against a certain group of people.
It's one thing if I'm just a regular Joe and I say: "I don't like gay people" and it's quite another if I'm the leader of a religious movement and say: "All gay people are a disgrace to god and moral values and cannot be tolerated. I urge true believers to bring swift justice against them".
I think that only the second example fits the hate speech category and should be punished.

The trouble with a lot of self-made men is that they worship their creator.
