The news this morning is that Google and Microsoft are working together to with the UK's National Crime Agency and the Internet Watch Foundation to block and prevent child pornography images and other abusive images from their search engines.

Child Pornography In BingThe BBC reports they have blocked around a 100,000 search terms from showing any results when searched on. I tried searching for the term [child pornography] in both Google and Bing, while Bing shows nothing at all, Google currently takes a different approach. Google shows image from those arrested for it or sites that are fighting against it.

Google communications director Peter Barron said:

We're agreed that child sexual imagery is a case apart, it's illegal everywhere in the world, there's a consensus on that. It's absolutely right that we identify this stuff, we remove it and we report it to the authorities.
