Let’s say you create a platform where you have people share their files in a public forum/indexer/whatever and you create a search engine for this. Much like any search engine I would say. Much like the old Napster for instance. And let’s assume you would like to commercialize this running ads on it, how do you avoid being pressured to remove any links to illegal content? What I mean is that although you will not have the authority to remove content that you simply do not have access to (delete) but you can still be pressured into shutting down your site or stop distributing your application right?
Actually, the same would go for any maidsafe “website” right? If one creates a “commercial” website, a news blog for instance with content that for whatever reason a government or corporation does not agree on, I could always be forced to take that content down or be prosecuted right?
Any thoughts on this?
