Will an advertising boycott force Google to crackdown on extreme content?
Google has responded to major companies withdrawing online adverts by promising to take "a tougher stance on hateful, offensive and derogatory content". The comments come after it emerged adverts including those funded by the UK Government were appearing next to extremist videos. So who is Google really answerable to and what can it do to regulate its content? Share Radio's Tom Hill spoke to editor of Marketing Week Sarah Vizard and media lawyers Mark Smith from Fieldfisher and Natalie Elsborg from Charles Russell Speechlys.
