The law was meant to punish online pornography sites that make their content inaccessible to minors.

So...porn sites should be accessible to minors?? What am I missing here?

Absolutely right - the government seems to think they have a right to any and all data held by nongovernmental organizations. The allegation is not that they have done anything illigal - they just want to analyze Google's data to see who might have been doing something illegal.

I very much hope this fails for the government. This is like a pre-cognitive crime. "If you don't have anything to hide, why were you searching for the words 'girls tight dresses pigtails', hmm?"

The government contends it needs the Google data to determine how often pornography shows up in online searches.

Are they completely impaired?

Confidential to the Justice Dept...

Just go to WWW.GOOGLE.COM and search for whatever you wish.

If they want it, tell the feds to do it the old fashioned way. Buy all the stock out in a hostile takeover and get the data that way.

Hey, this is 100% ok.

After all, we have ensured that our porous borders are now no longer permeable to illegals, we have also shut down all the various terror networks around the globe, we have solved all social security issues, national security is in tip-top shape, our dependence on foreign oil is basically negated etc etc etc ....goodness, every resident is even getting a gob of freshly-minted pixie dust to sprinkle on the soles of their shoes so as to fly like the lil' birdies.

Thus, since everything is taken care of, the government can go ahead and make Google turn over their records. After all this has to be given top priority .....it is for the children you know.

While they are at it, they can learn who is searching for...

"hiding weapons"
"bomb plans"
"hiding assets"
"limited government"
"Waco"
"corporatism"
"lost liberties"
"thoughtcrime"
"enumerated powers"

Heads need to roll for this. This bit of obnoxious Big Brotherism has critically, perhaps fatally, damaged the administration's credibility on surveillance issues. As a result, they're probably going to lose the arguments over warrantless wiretaps, Patriot Act renewal, etc.

The government indicated that other, unspecified search engines have agreed to release the information

This is getting to be un-effing-believable. Does the government have nothing better to do?

What the hell is going on with this administration? Don't we have other things to worry about besides who's looking for naughty pictures?

Good grief.

I wonder if this has anything to do with the "supposed" claim that,before Sept 11,multiple web domains were registered such as, worldtradecenter929.com,horrorinamerica.com, horrorinnewyork.com, nycterroriststrike.com, pearlharborinmanhattan.com, terrorattack2001.com, towerofhorror.com, tradetowerstrike.com,etc.,,?????

Perhaps child porn is just a cover.
