Google vs. Bush

Recently the Bush administration (or should I say the Cheney administration?) has subpoenaed Google for a list of 50,000 randomly selected websites indexed by its search engine, and for a list of what people have been searching for. A federal judge recently ordered Google to provide the list of websites, but through out the government's demands for the search terms.

The government did not want to use this information in a criminal case, it wanted the data to do a study. The government should not have the right to subpoena a company for data to do a study, they should have to ask nicely just like everyone.
