Google scans your Gmail inbox for child porn to help catch criminals, but don’t worry about loss of privacy (yet)

Gmail censored
Last week, a man in Texas was arrested by the police for sending child porn to a friend email. This isn’t something we’d usually report on, except in this case the man was arrested due to a direct tip-off from Google, which caught the child porn moving across its Gmail servers and dutifully alerted the police. This raises a rather thorny question: How did Google scan the man’s inbox for child porn? And more importantly, does this mean Google is scanning everyone’s inbox for child porn and other illegal materials?
