    I have a blog post of my own on this:


    Regulation Of Search Engines discussion – “Federal Search Commission?”

    “But the authors’ specific attempts to find a hairsplit for search engines (my paraphrase here) – secret algorithms, or overblown marketing claims, or Google-is-God perceptions, or defining it as not discussion among citizens – just seem to me to be playing to the discomfort that some liberal-arts types have with anything involving technology. If computer programs are covered by copyright (something that was not so evident years ago), then search engine ranking are “opinions”.”

    Seth, good post. I hadn’t seen Lauren’s post about disputing search results. I guess my main question would be why a special form instead of just the more speech that someone can do on their on website(s)?

    Thanks Matt. Why not “more speech”? Because this issue is not about merely speaking, but whether or not you’re heard.
