BREITBART.COM - Brazil gives Google two weeks to turn over user data

BREITBART.COM - Brazil gives Google two weeks to turn over user data:

"Brazilian authorities have given Google Brazil 15 days to turn over user information from websites that promote criminal activity, threatening the company with 23,000 dollars in daily fines if they do not comply.

Filed through a district court in Sao Paulo, the judicial order on Thursday noted that Google had so far 'unsatisfactorily met' investigators' data requirements, preventing them from identifying criminal elements using the Internet service.

The government, monitoring online messages for possible crimes, wants the US company to turn over users' personal information to curb violence, racism, discrimination, pornography and child abuse."
