Takedown requests from governments increasing aimed at Google

http://j.mp/NGk2fI  (The Next Web)

  "Google has released new data for its Transparency Report, which
   provides details of government requests to takedown content across the
   company's websites and services.  The report - dated July-December
   2011 - now includes details of government requests to take down blog
   posts, videos and other information on Google services during the
   period. It also includes all state-led requests to share other
   information, including user IP addresses.  Google calls the latest
   findings "troubling" and it notes that requests to remove political
   content are a trend that it is continuing to see, rather than the
   brief blip that it had optimistically hoped they were."
