German Search Engines To Self-Regulate Censorship

Google Blogoscoped has an interesting item, German Search Engines Self-regulating, on how major search
engines serving Germany are forming a voluntary group to streamline censorship of links they are required by law to remove. There will be a centralized server containing a
blacklist of banned URLs. Chances are, those in Germany going to non-German editions of these search engines will still be able to access the “censored” material, however,
just as they can now. No mention if the search engines will do any form of disclosure of censorship. See also
