So... you know you're going to be googling some potentially risque terms. You want to make sure you don't accidentally access anything illegal, so you log on to google, set your safe filter to maximum, and then start your research.
Somehow, bizarrely, you come across a particular set of search terms (the only potentially dodgy word in the terms is "nude") and your screen fills with mostly illegal images. Your filter does not stop them from appearing in the search results.
Is google responsible for the failure of the filter? Are they responsible for indexing illegal images and returning them in a google search? Considering that in some jurisdictions, merely downloading those images (as your browser has done) carries a jail term, where does the blame lie? You can argue you had no intention to get dodgy images, by applying the filter. But you are also the one who typed in the search terms.
Who or what, is legally liable, in your opinion?
