AG Hood: Google Still Not Effectively Fighting Crime

Posted: Updated:
Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood is continuing his push for Google to do more to prevent people from using its services to find illegal drugs or pirated videos, music, and games.

Hood, as chairman of the intellectual property committee of the National Association of Attorneys General, has been dogging the Internet giant for most of 2013. He wrote in a Nov. 27 letter that Google isn't adequately responding to his concerns, and doesn't rule out a lawsuit.

Google, based in Mountain View, Calif., says it's investing tens of millions of dollars to combat the problems that Hood is concerned about. Hood, though, says Google continues to refuse meaningful talks with him and other attorneys general, saying the online search and advertising giant is falsely claiming that changes are technically impossible.
