Google Germany Drops Adult Video Sites Like RedTube.com

It appears Google Germany has removed many, if not all, adult video sites from their index. A Google Groups thread reported this, where an adult video site owner said his Adult Tube site was removed from Google.de and so were all his competitors.

Googler, JohnMu, explained that a site command for at least one of the sites, such as site:www.redtube.com, returns a message from Google that it was removed due to local laws.

RedTube Removed from Google Germany

If you click over to ChillingEffects.org it explains:

A URL that otherwise would have appeared in response to your search, was not displayed because that URL was reported as illegal by a German regulatory body.

The same with other sites, such this message, "German Court Order against display of privatamateure.com and youporn.com."

stupid laws, honestly it's getting boring people thinking for others and telling them, commanding them, how to live their life.
