Can Google Protect Consumer Privacy?
Google is organizing an effort to set limits on government access to digital communications. “The company has been talking to advocacy groups and companies about joining a lobbying effort to
change the 1986 Electronic Communications Privacy Act,” reports Bloomberg, citing comments from a Google spokesman. Well suited to partake in the privacy debate, Google says it receives some
1,400 requests a month from U.S. authorities for users’ e-mails and documents.
