Difference (from prior minor revision)

Changed: 7c7

< * The U.S. government has obtained a controversial type of secret court order to force Google Inc. and small Internet provider Sonic.net Inc. to turn over information from the email accounts of [[WikiLeaks]] volunteer Jacob Appelbaum, according to documents reviewed by ''The Wall Street Journal:''" [http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203476804576613284007315072.html] And [[Reverend Magdalen]] writes, "Anyone shocked by Google handing over #[[WikiLeaks]] supporter @ioerror's email obviously doesn't read @CiscoBlogs." [http://twitter.com/#!/revmagdalen/status/123273575716241409] She's right -- Google has been handing email addresses to the government for a long time, because they ''have'' to. Like it or not, Google has to obey the law, even when the law sucks.
