Facebook’s former security chief and a Google software engineer are among critics pushing back on Google CEO Sundar Pichai, after he publicly defended his company’s plan to launch a censored search engine in China, code-named “Project Dragonfly.” Google has faced attacks on multiple fronts after its under-construction search engine for China was exposed in an August media report alleging the browser would block information about the Chinese government’s political opponents, democracy, human rights, free speech, and anything unfavorable to the regime. Pichai, in an interview this week with the New York Times, said he was “committed to serving users in China” and compared censorship there to the “right to be forgotten” law in the European Union, which can force Google to delete data it h

Google India has apparently decided to move the high court against the latest ruling by the Income Tax Appellate Tribunal (ITAT), Bengaluru which mandates a royalty tax for Google Ad-words programme. The tribunal on Friday said the payments made by Google India to the parent firm Google Ireland constitute a royalty under the Indian law, as well as under the India-Ireland Double Tax Avoidance Treaty (DTAA), and therefore are subject to withholding tax, ToI reported.
