Brazil wants to seize user data from Google's Orkut

Posted on Monday, March 13 2006 @ 00:00:17 CET by

The Brazilian authorities said they will seek warrants to seize information of hundreds of users of Google's Orkut social network, for suspected Internet crimes.
"Google Brasil was sensible and was willing to help (in the investigations), but it will seek guidance from headquarters in the United States," said Suiama.

Orkut, a social network service provided by Google, has around 14 million registered users, over 70 percent of whom say they are Brazilian.

Brazil's prosecutors are investigating child pornography, racial discrimination, drug trafficking and other crimes on the Internet.

"This is a serious problem and we will cooperate," Hohagen told Reuters, adding that his company removed "hundreds" of pages from its Orkut service that had been denounced.
