1. Google is going to fight DOJ requests for their query logs. Not because of a criminal investigation but to help prove that the government's flawed (IMHO) COPA law is constitutionally sound. This is in comparison to AOL, MSN and Yahoo just handing over their logs.
2. Google refusing to pay Bell South in order to get "preference" on their network. Bell South's plan is to charge companies like Google and Amazon so that their network traffic would get to users faster then "normal" internet traffic.
Now I don't know that much about global networks, but is such a silly idea and defeats the whole point of the internet. :P
