Brazil Makes the Most Content Takedown Demands of Google

Google’s second report on government transparency, released today, shows that Brazilian officials asked 398 times to have content removed from the Web in the first half of 2010–more than twice as often as Libya, which was next in line with 149 requests. The U.S. and Germany were close behind with 128 and 124, respectively. The report ranks the number of government takedown requests from 35 countries, with the aim of helping to promote free expression and competition in emerging markets.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
