But the Google spokesman denied the allegations and said that a number of steps are taken to prevent access to child pornography. Another spokesman Steve Langdon said that the search engine offers a service called SafeSearch. In this it filters out adult contents and provides the users for the information they are searching. But this lawsuit only calls Google as a of child pornography in the world and avoids names of other search engines such as Yahoo Inc. or Microsoft Corp.'s MSN. In conclusion the lawsuit does not demand for any monetary damages, but asks Google to stop advertising that provide illegal access to pornography.
