Google has placed a rainbow version of its logo on its search page, increasing pressure on President Vladimir Putin over Russia's "gay propaganda" law at the Sochi Winter Olympics.The page now shows a winter sports competitor above each of the six letters in the U.S. Internet giant's name, set against backgrounds in the six colours on the gay pride flag -- red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. Putin says the legislation, banning gay propaganda among minors, is needed to protect young people.Telecoms company AT&T, a sponsor of the U.S. Olympic team, criticised Russia this week over the law, increasing pressure on other companies to speak out. These companies are also facing pressure to speak out over the "gay propaganda" law.
