Google Documents Government Snooping -
June 20, 2012
Google disclosed government requests for user data in the latest installment in its Transparency Report. The report documents an upward trend in requests that Google itself finds "troubling." For this fifth installment of the interactive report, Google added the ability to view aggregated court orders and other requests across all countries. From July to December 2011, governments requested information on 28,562 user accounts worldwide. This number covers requests for user information and blog post or video take-downs and includes Google's rate of compliance. The U.S. government submitted 6,321 requests for data, of which Google fulfilled more than 90% at least partially. The federal government also lodged 187 requests for blog and video takedowns.
