Google Transparency report
Google has added a "transparency report" page to the Google website, which links to an interactive map of government requests for Google to take down or censor content. Google says that transparency is an important value for the company, and their goal is to maximize transparency around the flow of information through their web products. They say that "We hope this step toward greater transparency will help in ongoing discussions about the appropriate scope and authority of government requests."
