Internet.com reports in Google Search Request Not a Privacy Threat that the Department of Justice has rejected Google's argument that handing over query data will be a privacy thread. The DOJ says this is because they are not asking for specific user data that can be associated back to any individual user.
"No individual user of Google, or of any other search engine, need fear that his or her personal identifying will be disclosed," according to the government brief.
Gary Price has a link to the full brief.
