Google Tool Tracks Government Tracking

Google has launched a new tool, here, that will track and report on how many requests for personal data it receives from governments, on a government by government basis. It will also report on request by governments to remove content.

Currently, the new tool breaks down by country and service the number of government demands in the second half of 2009 in the 100 or so countries where it operates. Google said it will update the information every six months.

  1. Very cool! when I checked it Lulu's Brazil was number one in both Removal Requests and Data Requests. Not surprisingly the US was number 4 in removal requests and number 2 in data requests - Big Brother is watching!
