News from the Net

The Justice Department has decided that Google has no grounds for thinking that the Bush administrations' request for your search history violates your privacy. But then again, take a look at an email sent to the "consultant" responsible for this decision from back in 1997:

Dear Professor Stark, I am writing regarding the contract that you signed with the University of California. I believe that, in said contract, you specifically agreed not to use any students in any experiment without their prior consent. To the best of my knowledge, the students currently enrolled in Statistics 2 were never asked to sign a waiver giving their consent to be a part of your evil Javascript experiment.

Well, actually, the adult magazine Perfect10 is suing Google for copyright infringement because Google is indexing sites that include pictures from their magazines... IE: if I put a pic on my site that I stole (or scanned) from Perfect 10 and Google indexed my page.
