Google decided to join other big names on the web to oppose the SOPA and PIPA bills which were designed to prevent online piracy, but which opponents said were equivalent to the censorship of the Internet.
Edward Lear’s 200th Birthday
A spot of nostalgia to celebrate the creator of The Owl and the Pussycat, and a good demonstration of how recognisable the Google name remains – even when incorporated into a detailed doodle.

These are just a few of the Google Doodles which have caught our eye during the past twelve months. Which has been your favourite of 2012?
