Why do they need to subpoena Google's search records to find the content providers? The article says they're after the site owners/content providers. They could just do searches themselves to find the sites, then work with Network Solutions to find out the domain owner info.

Here is a little snipped near the end of the full article:
The government indicated that other, unspecified search engines have agreed to release the information, but not Google.
Well, there goes Yahoo and MSN search. As soon as people realize that their searches are being handed over to the Feds, users of the other search portals will go to Google just retain their privacy.
Not to sound too alarmist, but what the hell is happening to this country?
