Google & Brazil Fight Over Orkut User Data Rights

AmericasNetwork.com reports that Google and Brazil are at it again, in terms of Google’s Orkut, social networking product. Google appeared in front of the Chamber of Deputies’ Human Rights Committee to protect Orkut users data from Brazilian authorities. Brazil wants the data to help prevent crimes, such as a recent fight Brazilian police broke up between “rival football fans,” which was organized on Orkut.

Google has been asked before by Brazil for data. We are also aware of some drug pushers being arrested in connection with using Orkut.
