Google defends Earth

Another day, another well researched and accurate article in the Hindustan Times. Google seems eager to set the record straight, making both International PR manager Debbie Frost and Senior Policy Counsel Andrew McLaughlin available for interview. Their arguments will be familiar to readers of this blog, but it’s good to have the following on the record, courtesy of McLaughlin:

“… The US government has never made any request that Google make changes to the Google Earth service. Nor to date has any other government formally requested Google to remove or obscure particular places.”
