Not being Evil

Google have resisted a massive request for a huge number of the search queries submitted through it, it is still going to have to hand over data but less than the United States department of Justice wanted. Googles blog has this statement:
"The government's original request demanded billions of URLs and two month's worth of users' search queries. Google resisted the subpoena, prompting the judge's order today. In addition to excluding search queries from the subpoena, Judge James Ware also required the government to limit its demand for URLs to 50,000. We will fully comply with the judge's order."
