Russian Activists Want Google Maps to Hide 'Illegal Content'

Activists from the youth organization of the United Russia ruling political party are going to send an official request to Google with a demand to remove various 'erotic' locations from Google Maps.

      Young activists from a group called Mediaguard have already sent a letter to Julia Solovieva, Google’s general director in Russia, saying that they've found hundreds of places on Google Maps that contain information about illegal casinos and “adults places” of an “erotic nature,” like gay clubs and brothels. According to the activists, that kind of information could be harmful and inappropriate for children.

      A Google representative allegedly told the Izvestia newspaper that the information about locations are usually added by users, so it can be contrary to fact or even illegal. The company has procedures in place for removing content from its Maps service, when it violates Google’s own rules or breaks the law, and users are free to submit specific complaints about inaccurate data using the service's special buttons and links.
