Will the same regulations Google wants, also provide better oversight into
how Google operates?  When Google unilaterally removes or changes the
rankings of its search results, I assume a government regulatory agency
will be able to issue orders and control how Google operates its
bottleneck search infrastructure to provide fair, neutral and transparent,
in the government agency's opinion, of google's operations?
