Google will not comply with requests from regulators in Germany and Hong Kong to surrender data collected from unsecured wireless networks, citing the need to address the "legal and logistical process for making data available." The New York Times reports that Google implied German privacy laws were preventing the disclosure, but Hamburg Data Protection Supervisor Johannes Caspar said the request would not constitute "criminal behavior" so there was "no apparent reason to still withhold the data from us."

Unless some remedial measures are taken by Google promptly, I shall have to consider escalating the situation and resort to more assertive action."
