Google discloses government requests for censorship, minus China

Brazil tops the list of countries for making highest number of requests to Google for removing content or seek information about users. Brazil made 291 requests between July and December last year.

Germany, India and United States are the other countries ranking high on the list. Surprised?

Unsurprisingly, Google does not disclose how many requests were made by China. Doing so would attract regulatory action for violating China's state secrecy laws! But we thought Google has said it would not succumb to China's repressive demands.

Here is the complete list.
