Judge Makes Google Share Info with Government

    March 14, 2006

CNN is reporting breaking news…

“Federal judge says he will require Google to turn over some data to Department of Justice.”

UPDATE: AP news adds

U.S. District Judge James Ware did not immediately say whether the data will include search requests that users entered into the Internet’s leading search engine.

It looks almost certain that Google will be forced to share some small sampling of search requests with the DOJ, so they can ascertain how likely it is children will be exposed to pornography.

We’ll update as we hear more.
