ABSTRACT
The article reports on the request of the U.S. Department of Justice for Google, AOL, Yahoo and Microsoft to turn over user search requests and Web site addresses which will be used to revive a law designed to protect children from explicit online content in 2006. However, all but Google did not approve of the request for claims that it would impose on its users' privacy and its trade secrets. Because of Google's protests, the government scaled back its request dramatically. The government is now requesting only for a random sampling of 50,000 Web site addresses indexed by Google and the text of 5,000 random search requests.
