Google Transparency Report for Hong Kong

Google has created an interactive transparency report showing information on requests made to the company by copyright holders and governments.  According to the report, from July 2009 to December, 2012, Google received two requests from the Hong Kong government to remove a total of 374 items from YouTube.  The report does not give any information on the nature of the items involved.

 During the same period, the number of government requests for Google to produce user information increased.  In the six-month period ending Dec 31, 2012, the Hong Kong Government issued 255 requests for Google to hand over user data. There were no such requests during the same period three years ago.
