Between these projects and all the various other 'ensure the health of the internet' projects where Google seems to drive definitions of health according to their own needs, I'm starting to feel like Google is the most amazing example of regulatory capture we've ever seen.

In an unregulated industry, this company has leveraged a monopoly in one segment (search) to turn itself into a regulator for all the other segments, thus creating a regulated industry it has pre-captured.

Well done lads.
