Freedom of speech in NZ assassinated by Microsoft

Posted by te2ataria on June 20, 2016

Alerted by a reader in the United States

Microsoft’s Bing has removed “Zombie Democracy – Apartheid Fort NZ” blog from its search index

We have been alerted by a reader in the US that Bing.com, owned by the software Goliath Microsoft,  has removed our blog from their search index. We are unaware of any legal reason for this egregious attack on our freedom of speech.

Microsoft Bing has not provided any explanation.

Our colleagues in 8 countries have tried their local Bing search for any information or links to this blog, without success.

Having followed the link Some results have been removed … we found the following:

How Bing delivers search results

Microsoft respects freedom of expression. If Microsoft receives requests to remove content from individuals, businesses, and governments, in limited cases, where quality, safety, user demand, relevant laws, and/or public policy concerns exist, Bing might remove results, inform users of certain risks, or provide users with options for tailoring their content. Bing limits removal of search results to a narrow set of circumstances and conditions to avoid restricting Bing users’ access to relevant information.

Legal requests from governments, individuals, or otherwise

Certain countries maintain laws or regulations that apply to search service providers and require removal of access to certain indexed pages. Some of these laws allow specific individuals or entities to demand removal of results (such as for copyright infringement, libel, defamation, personally identifiable information, hate speech, or other personal rights), while others are administered and enforced by the government.

When Microsoft receives a request or demand, Bing balances its support for freedom of expression and for free access to relevant content with compliance with local law. We review and assess the request or demand, including the reason and basis for the request or demand, the authority or rights of the requesting party, our applicable policies and our commitments to our users with regard to freedom of expression, and determine whether and to what extent we should remove access to the content.

Examples of legal request areas with global approaches

Child sexual abuse materials

The production and distribution of, and access to, child sexual abuse materials is universally condemned and generally illegal. Sadly, the abuse of children is not new, but the web affords new opportunities to those who would commit crimes against children. Bing works with others in technology and industry groups, law enforcement, and governmental and non-governmental organizations to help stop the spread of this horrific content online. One way we do this is by removing pages that have been reviewed by credible agencies (or identified via Microsoft PhotoDNA) and found to contain or relate to the sexual exploitation or abuse of children.

In particular, we remove pages from our index that have been identified by the Internet Watch Foundation (UK), NCMEC (US), and FSM (Germany) as, in their good faith judgment, hosting or providers of access to child sexual abuse material. Removing these links from displayed search results doesn’t block the materials from being accessed on the web or discovered through means other than Bing, but it does reduce the ability of those who would seek it out or profit from it.

More at How Bing delivers search results

Needles to say, none of the above apply to this blog. The only charge we are “guilty” of, is speaking out our minds.

We are rapidly reaching a point where only major catastrophes could save us from total tyranny manufactured by multinational corporations.

Homeless  Crisis: Families living in cars, garages, and under a loading dock

In his Rotorua Daily Post column this week, Waiariki MP Te Ururoa Flavell said there were families living in cars and garages, or living with friends and other families in crowded conditions, because they were unable to secure housing.

“The issue of homelessness has always been around, however there is now a huge shortage across the Bay of decent housing,” he said.

“There is a struggle for single people, small families and big families as well, there’s just not enough housing in Rotorua. We have to do a lot of emergency accommodation and hope and pray that we find people places,” says Social worker Liz Tai.
