Google Inc (GOOG) News: Right on Gmail, Sex Party Photos, New London HQ & More

Editor’s Note: Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)

As the Wall Street Journal reports, Mosley wants the search company to build software that would automatically block any pages containing the images —which he describes as a violation of his privacy — but Google has remained defiant, arguing that Mosley’s demands would result in an “unprecedented new internet censorship tool.”
