Google: No kids allowed

Terms of service means under 18 then no search, YouTube or Gmail

Go to NewsBlog original
Google's terms of service, while ignored by the vast majority of users, contain a pretty shocking clause: Under 18's are not permitted to use any of Google's Web properties. That's right, kids--no search, YouTube, Gmail, news, or images.

Under 18s wishing to watch YouTube videos of skateboarding dogs, or perform research for a school project will have to go or Microsoft's search, perhaps. The message from Mountain View seems clear: We don't want your (underage) business.
