Google Appeals Federal Judge’s Orkut Ruling

The International Herald Tribune reports that Google has appealed a federal judge’s order to hand over the IP address information to Brazilian authorities. Google claims the “federal civil court did not have the proper authority” for such information. But Google spokesperson, Debbie Frost said Google will help Brazilian authorities identify individuals accused of illegal activities on Google’s social networking platform, Orkut. This history goes way back, just start from here and keep clicking those links back to the previous stories. This amazes me that it is still going on since early this year.
