    This is a very clever negotiating ploy by the masterminds at Google. They’re basically calling the kettle black. If governments want open access to personal internet usage data, Google believes that internet users should know this. By publishing this data, they’re raising awareness of just how controlling users’ governments are over internet usage. The potentially negative PR for governments from this tool could be enough for them to start limiting these requests. All of which benefits Google of course.
