@sir I think Google is fine not using AGPL. Google is huge target for law suites because it is a huge company with lots of money.

from Google's blog about AGPL:

The license places restrictions on software used over a network which are extremely difficult for Google to comply with. Using AGPL software requires that anything it links to must also be licensed under the AGPL. Even if you think you aren’t linking to anything important, it still presents a huge risk to Google because of how integrated much of our code is. The risks heavily outweigh the benefits.
