US government asks Google for user data over 1000 per month

New disclosure data from Google reveal how often they are asked for user data.

6,321 is the latest number which represents how many times within a six-month period the U.S. government asked Google for user data — more than any other country on Google’s July through December 2011 Transparency Report.

This is a 6 percent increase compared to its previous reporting period.

Other governments around the world are gaining steam in targeting Google with more demands to remove online content and turn over information about people using its Internet search engine, YouTube video site and other services.

India is in second for number of requests by the government with 2,207 requests.

Google Inc. provided a glimpse at the onslaught of government requests in a summary posted on its website late Sunday.
