More on Google's Trade Secrets Concerns

From Adam Liptak and the New York Times (registration req'd), an article concerning why the Google flap with the government relates less to the privacy of Google users and more Google's concerns about its trade secrets. According to article, "the case itself, according to people involved in it and scholars who are following it, has almost nothing to do with privacy. It will turn, instead, on serious but relatively routine questions about trade secrets and civil procedure."

Google's main argument in objecting to the government's subpoena was that its "highly proprietary" trade secrets could be jeopardized.

There's still very little information about what trade secrets are at issue or even what categories of trade secrets may be involved.
