Apparently you didn't bother to read the article. This has nothing to do with Big Pharma or U.S. seniors trying to afford their blood pressure meds.
You are partly right, I stopped reading half way through in disgust. It's all about Big Pharma. They want to control who gets to profit from "narcotics, steroids and other controlled substances" and have lobbied to have these policies enforced. Now you have fraudulent sting operations against google, militant border agents checking grandma, and the 'war on drugs'. They do it in name of "protecting the people".. whatever.
It doesn't help the people, the people are looking for the products.
Definitely provided what the users wanted, which is their mantra, n'est pas?
Si. Google shouldn't be penalized for being a conduit of information, they have sufficient guidelines to protect the unwary. But they are being penalized because the Feds are in bed with Big Pharma.
The hollywood/sopa fiasco is more of the same. It doesn't serve the people.
the forfeiture paid by Google represented not just the money it made from the ads, but also the revenue collected by illegal pharmacies through Google-related sales.
Cash grab. They'll use it for the next war. I'm sure the lawyers got a nice cut too.
