Google has banned essay writing services from advertising on its AdWords platform.

The companies, which sell academic essays, theses and dissertations to students who don’t want to write themselves, are now part of a list of unacceptable advertisers that includes the illegal (prostitution, drugs) and the immoral (tobacco, miracle cures), with Google deciding what is acceptable in their minds, and what isn’t.

While anyone can see their point, especially with Google’s close links to academia, there’s a fine line when banning things that are not illegal. After all, many politicians jump on the (First Amendment violating) violent video games bandwagon, and while we expect our politicians to be stupid, I’d be far more dissapointed if Google banned the makers of those games from advertising. Lets hope they stick with banning the scummy, and don’t ban by bandwagon.
