Engineers at Google Chicago police free speech on the Internet

"Every six months, the Google transparency report comes out, and almost everybody writes a story that goes like this: 'Google gives up data to governments, and this is bad,'" said Eva Galperin of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a San Francisco-based civil liberties group. "And usually the story they don't write is that nearly every company with data about users gives up data to governments. We don't have any data about what they're giving up and what circumstances they're giving it up under. Not only is what Google doing better than nothing; almost everyone else is doing nothing."

Facebook, Galperin noted, doesn't publish such reports.
