Schmidt: Google may share user info with US gov’t

Google chief executive Eric Schmidt has revealed that the US government has made “requests” for the search giant to share information about its users, and that Google would comply if the requests were legal.During his flying visit to Sydney, ZDNet.com.au asked Schmidt whether, if Google was sharing information with the US government, the company would admit to it.”That’s a good question,” Schmidt said. “The US government has attempted to get us to give them information and we have a very strong legal system in the US — as you do — and that legal system is really important, in terms of limiting random explorations by governments.”
