AG Hood Slams Google for Links to Pharmacies, Pirated Content

Mississippi’s attorney general announced today that he will subpoena Google for records about its activity surrounding rogue, online pharmacies, as well as pirated content.

“Google is aiding and abetting criminal activity and putting consumers at risk,” Mississippi AG Jim Hood said in a statement.

At issue are links to online pharmacies and copyrighted material that pop up if you search certain phrases on Google. According to AG Hood, Google has not made enough of an effort to remove access to this type of content on its search engine.

“Google’s lack of response leaves us no choice except to issue subpoenas to Google for possible violations of state consumer protection acts and other state and federal civil and criminal laws,” Hood said.
