Google hands over data on suspected pedophiles to Brazil via the AFP reports Google has finally handed over profiles of suspected pedophiles to Brazilian authorities. As expected, Google did hand over 3,261 files with information about alleged pedophilia activities in Google’s Orkut communities.
A member of the senate commission, Demostenes Torres, believes the data will provide enough evidence to incriminate about 200 pedophiles in Brazil. In fact, he said about 90% of pedophilia complaints in Brazil come from Orkut.
In any event, this step hopefully concludes a saga that has been going on between Google and Brazil over privacy of these profiles. Brazil has been asking Google for this data since March 2006,;just over two years later, Google has handed over 3,261 files.
