Google Won’t Hand Over Competitive Data If Hit With Subpoena
Eric Goldman has updated us on the ongoing Connor Sport Court and Rhino Court case involving Google. The case, which we covered in Want Competitive Keyword Information? Just Subpoena Google!, suggested that Google was going to hand over competitive keyword data simply because one company filed a subpoena for it.
Google has, in fact, declined to give Connor Sport Court the keyword data they initially requested from them. Connor Sport Court filed a motion to compel Google to hand over the data on October 31st. The hearing for this motion is scheduled for December 7th at 9 am in San Jose.
