Google, in defense of its users

In a remarkable stance of protecting privacy, Google has refused a subpoena from the federal government asking for search information. Although the information requested by the Justice Department requires no personal information and only asks for search information, it could later ask for more in-depth data further.

Google's theme since its inception was: "to do no evil" -- and they have continued to follow this motto despite the U.S. government's insistence. Where Microsoft's MSN, and Yahoo! gave in, Google is fighting a lone battle in defending its users.

Yet another reason why people like Google...they defend you and me.
