+ - Google rejects censorship ban

Submitted by ukhackster
ukhackster (978279) writes "A Google shareholder has failed to stop the company censoring its search results. The New York City comptroller told Google's annual shareholder meeting that it broke its corporate values by bowing to Chinese censorship, but the proposal — which called for the company to resist such demands — didn't get enough support.

The motion was expected to fail as it wasn't supported by Google's management, who control 66% of the votes. As The Guardian points out this makes it impossible for shareholders to force any changes that don't suit Larry Page, Sergey Brin and Eric Schmidt. Given Google's market dominance, is this acceptable?"
