US Government Demands Google Search Logs

C|net is reporting that Federal prosecutors are attempting to defend the 1998 Child Online Protection Act by demanding millions of search records from popular online search engines such as Yahoo, MSN and Google.

According to the article, America Online, Yahoo and Microsoft have already supplied what they claim anonymous samples of millions of search terms and the websites they return. Google, on the other hand, has declared that they will vigorously defend the privacy rights of their users through all possible legal means before handing over logs of how people use their site to the government.
