Google offers priority reporting to Indian police

Google's Orkut social networking site has fan clubs of Indian gangsters; Indian police are concerned these could be used to find new recruits. Google has offered Indian police a special tool for priority reporting of objectionable material on Orkut. The reporting tool does not affect the way Google treats users' data but only speeds up direct communication and the police will still be required to follow an appropriate legal process in order to get user-identifying information. The process for reporting objectionable material on Orkut remains the same, as do Google's own procedures for deciding whether or not to remove the material from the site.
