Feds Seek Google Records in Porn Probe, from the WaPo

Google has refused to comply with the subpoena, issued last year, for a broad range of material from its databases, including a request for 1 million random Web addresses and records of all Google searches from any one-week period…

Yes, that could be your data. Me, I use Google daily, several times. So do you. All Google searches from a one-week period? How many times do you search Google in a week?

The government contends it needs the data to determine how often pornography shows up in online searches…

Hell, Spink could tell you that. You don’t need a subpoena to find that out. If only that was what this is actually about.

    If the records that they get include IP addresses, it may be a violation of HIPAA, since we know that a signifcant percentange of web searches are for health information. It could also be a violation of the privacy provisions of the
    E-Government Act of 2002. But I am not an attorney, at law or anything else. :)
