    Google resists demands for search records

    Today's Independent has this report:

    "The government is not entitled to go on a fishing expedition through millions of Google searches any time it wants, just because it claims that it needs that information," said Aden Fine of the American Civil Liberties Union, which has filed a "friend of court" briefing in support of Google.

    "Anyone asking a court to approve such an intrusive, burdensome request must explain why the information is needed and for what purpose. The government has refused to make its purpose known to the public or to the court, and Google has rightly denied the government's demand for this information."
