Google still is allowing ads for illegal online pharmacies that sell dangerous or counterfeit drugs without a prescription, Mississippi state Attorney General Jim Hood charged Thursday.Report: Google Still Letting Illegal Drug Ads Through [usatoday.com]


Now the National Association of Attorneys General charges that Google is at it again. Speaking for the group, Hood, who co-chairs the association's intellectual property committee, says that Google's search engine displays at the top of keyword search results websites known to sell counterfeit goods. The attorneys general also say some of the sites selling counterfeit goods advertise with Google. And they say that such sites post videos on Google's YouTube service.
