Which companies are suing Google over privacy?
Cellular phone companies are asking a federal judge to order Google to delete a Google search that asked which companies are paying for the use of cell phone sex photos.
In the lawsuit filed Wednesday, AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile say the search results show that the search terms for the service are not limited to sex photos, but include other nude photographs of people.
The lawsuit seeks to block Google from using the search term “cell phone sex” to find images of nude or semi-nude people and the pictures would be “inadequate, irrelevant, and misleading.”
Google has already removed the term from its search results.AT&”Verizon said the search would lead to an “unfair” portrayal of people because the images were being “misused” for commercial purposes.”
Verizon’s position is that Google has failed to comply with its contractual obligations to the telecommunications companies and that the privacy protections that are intended to protect privacy of all persons in the United States are being violated by its actions,” AT<&.;Verizon wrote.
The carriers added that Google is using its search service to “market and promote products that harm consumers, especially children, by providing an online service to provide a platform for people to engage in sexual acts without their consent.”
They are seeking injunctive relief and an order prohibiting Google from continuing to use the search and to use images that violate children’s privacy.
The attorneys representing Google have asked the judge to declare that the “sex photos” search result are not searchable.
The search result has been updated to remove a reference to the terms “cellular telephone service” and “telephone service” from the top.
The carrier filing also noted that Google’s “sex images” search was not related to the “Sex on the Internet” program, which allows people to upload nude or partially nude photos of themselves and upload the photos on Google’s search engine.
The search result includes a link to a porn website.
The companies have said the Google search has been used in “unusual and inappropriate ways.”
AT&t said in its filing that the searches were used to sell the “Cellular Phone Sex” service.

Google has not responded to a request for comment.
