Conor Dougherty writes in the New York Times, “Governments of all sizes are demanding that Google hand over growing troves of data about its users, according to the Internet giant’s latest transparency report. The report is a tally of all the times a government has used its legal authority to demand that Google hand over internal data about the people who use Google products like Gmail, YouTube or its namesake search engine.”
The report from Google outlines increases in requests. Conor continues to report, “The data includes governments from around the world and of all sizes, including everything from small-town police departments to federal intelligence agencies. And, of course, Google doesn’t always say yes: The company complied, in part or whole, about 65 percent of the time, according to the report.”
So how much data does 1600 Pennsylvania request from 1600 Amphitheater (Google’s corporate address in Mountain View, California)?
