Google defies US over search data

Google is resisting efforts by the US Department of Justice to force it to hand over data?regarding what people search for.

Google was asked for information on the types of query submitted over a week, and the websites included in its index to help The?DOJ to determine how often pornography shows up in online searches.

It says the order will not violate personal privacy, but Google says it is too broad and threatens trade secrets.

However, it is more likely (knowing this administration) that this is?simply a?toe in the water request to see what will happen. If Google loose, you’ll see more requests like this until we all accept it’s ok for the government to know everything about us, and throw us in prison without a lawyer because we used the word terrorist on?AIM one night.
