Faithful Google!

Google is faithful to us (users)! Yeah it really obeys what it said in its privacy statments. We can trust google with anything. The big bully Uncle Sam is trying to get search information and user details from Google but hurray Google is refusing!

Internet search giant Google has been quietly battling the Bush administration since last year after it refused to turn over details about its customers’ search activity, according to court records.

According to papers filed on Wednesday in U.S. District Court in San Jose, Department of Justice lawyers said that Google refused to comply with a subpoena for a wide range of search information. Published reports indicate that information
included a request for 1 million random web addresses and records of all Google searches from any one-week period.

With mountains of sensitive search and email information in its archives, concerns have been raised in the past by privacy and civil liberties organizations over Google’s stewardship of that information.

The government is hoping to gain information to help resuscitate the 1998 Child Online Protection Act, which was struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court two years ago. The court held that the law violated free speech guarantees.
