Give any government an inch and they will take a mile
A very good point, and absolutely true. So is this: Give any business an inch and they will take a mile.
The wild west analogy is good too. Right now Google is the cattle baron Fletcher from Shane. If you are onside with Fletcher, sorry Google, then you can live the high life. If you fall foul then you can only hope that Shane will ride into town.
