Google Works With Brazil To Shut Down Orkut Communities

The Associated Press reports that Google has finally agreed to pull the plug on some communities within Orkut, Google’s social networking software. Google has specifically agreed to shut down any community that violates Orkut’s terms of service. This includes “any illegal or unauthorized purpose” such as;

+ Google Faces Criminal Charges For Child Porn & Racial Material

About time I guess.
