Submission + - Ads Displayed in Google are Free Speech Issue

WebHostingGuy writes: "In a recent ruling from a U.S. Federal Court ads displayed by search engines are protected as free speech". In the court ruling Yahoo!, Google and Microsoft were sued by an individual demanding under the 14th Admendment that the search engines display his advertisements concerning fraud in North Carolina. The Court flatly said the search engines were exercising their 1st Admendent right of free speech in deciding what ads they want to display."
