    I wouldn't quite call it chump change. Anytime you put a dent in Google ad revenue, it hurts them a bit. It's all business anyway, the U.S doesn't want Canadian companies taking away profits. It doesn't have a thing to do with safety.

    Chump change in the context that it will dent Google and embarass them as much as possible. These are Rogue drug resellers and do not represent legit Canadian Pharmacies that sell online. Google's main revunue source is in ads, they got caught in with the dirty little mittens in the cookie jar again and fully deserve what they got whacked with.

    Well, yeah they do then. It's difficult to put trust in a company who, incident after incident continue to carry on doing things like this, and, of course, the privacy issue which will never go away so long as Google stays alive through ad revenue.
