Lots at Stake if Google Loses to the DOJ



CNet reports that Google could face a second subpoena, should the U.S. Justice Department successfully get the information it wants from the search engine.

The American Civil Liberties Union warned Friday that if the first subpoena is granted–giving the government’s expert the information to use to evaluate the effectiveness of porn filters–the ACLU’s legal assault on the same antipornography law will require it to target Google as well.

This makes it even more important that Google wins while at the same time making it a little more difficult for the judge to side with the DOJ.
