Google reports ‘alarming’ rise in government censorship requests

“Western governments, including the United States, appear to be stepping up efforts to censor Internet search results and YouTube videos, according to a ‘transparency report’ released by Google.
‘It’s alarming not only because free expression is at risk, but because some of these requests come from countries you might not suspect — Western democracies not typically associated with censorship,’ Dorothy Chou, a senior policy analyst at Google, wrote in a blog post on Sunday night.”
