Letter: Why Has the Press Focused on Privacy With Google Subpoena?

Share this article:
Bob Gellman's article ("Google and the Federal Subpoena," April 3) is interesting and has some points I agree with. However, I am disappointed that the press has picked up completely on the issues of privacy in this all and treated the point of the government's request as a minor side point.

The government is trying to crack down on child pornography!

There are predators who now have access to our living rooms! This is a new world and has new problems.

I know what you will say ...

"It's the parent's fault. Don't let children go online unsupervised."

As a parent, I don't want to restrict access to this most valuable source of information so child predators and pornographers can run free.

There are armies of patent attorneys protecting company trademarks. They are solving that problem. Privacy hasn't mattered on that issue.

Privacy becomes a big deal though, when it involves pornography online. I guess there are too many important business interests affected.

I personally have switched from Google to Yahoo as my home page. I see their willingness to help as a good trait.
