Google breaks down where it faces most government demands for user data, content removal By The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' The U.S., India and several European countries are where Google gets the most government demands to turn over information about its users and censor online material.

The Internet search leader released the snapshot in a Tuesday update on its website. The breakdown provides a country-by-country summary of Google Inc.'s legal sparring with authorities during the first six months of the year.

The statistics show Google complies with most government demands.

In the U.S., Google gave federal, state and other agencies what they wanted 93 percent of the time. The government submitted nearly 6,000 requests affecting more than 11,000 user accounts during the January-June period.

India's government made 1,739 requests about more than 2,400 users, the second highest totals. Google honored 70 percent of those requests.
