Google, Microsoft Announce Plans for Search Term Blockage

An announcement from Google and the Microsoft Corporation outlined their plans to launch software which promises to prevent specific search terms related to online child sexual abuse from producing results, according to a news article posted by The Web Hosting Industry Review.

The article states that the software – which initially will be introduced in the UK – promises to prevent approximately 100,000 related search terms from producing results. A number of experts in child protection have assisted in building a list of unambiguous terms which Google and Microsoft will translate into over 150 languages, according to this report.

The article states that Google assigned 200 employees to developing this preventative technology and will continue to work with law enforcement agencies to detect and remove images of child abuse being uploaded to the internet.
