Search Engine giant Google Inc. has raised concerns regarding the demand of the Bush Administration to examine the Internet search requests of million of Internet users.
In a court hearing justice department has made it clear that it would be a clear violation of privacy rights if million of Internet users would be examined. This has been said in favor of the suit filed by the Google.
This brief came as an answer to Google's harsh arguments which were filed by it last week. The suit had been filed to check the demand of the government regarding search requests. To support its fact a declaration by researcher Philip B. Stark is submitted by the Justice Department. This declaration rejects the privacy concerns.
Last summer, Google had thoroughly rejected the views of Justice Department after receiving a decree. This consequently led to the current tug of war. Well, the measures have been taken to revive an on-line child protection law. Till now it has been blocked by the U.S. Supreme Court.
The one motto to make it possible is to make Internet filters strong to prevent children from viewing pornography or any sort of inappropriate material on-line. With the sensitivity attached to the case, it has already gained widespread attention and consequently affected the search engines as the prospect of government surveillance.
Next hearing before U.S. District Judge James Ware is scheduled in San Jose on March 13.
