RECORDS SOUGHT IN U.S. QUEST TO REVIVE PORN LAW



    The Bush administration on Wednesday asked a federal judge to order Google to turn over a broad range of material from its closely guarded databases.

    The move is part of a government effort to revive an Internet child protection law struck down two years ago by the U.S. Supreme Court. The law was meant to punish online pornography sites that make their content accessible to minors. The government contends it needs the Google data to determine how often pornography shows up in online searches.


It looks like Google is fighting it, which is good. It just doesn't seem to me like this is the best way for the Justice Dept. to go.

Not really any info on what exactly happened or what dangers resulted from it. People may want to change their passwords, just in case. I did. I agree with the sentiment here: This is unacceptable from one of the most-visited Web sites in the world.
