Brazil prosecutors aim to sue Google

CNET "Brazilian prosecutors asked a federal judge on Tuesday for permission to file a civil lawsuit against Google, alleging it was withholding user information required for a separate criminal investigation.
The prosecutors want Google to pay a $61 million fine and asked that if it refuses to comply with its information request, its Brazilian unit be dissolved.
In its request, the federal prosecutor's office in Sao Paulo alleges that several community pages on Google's popular social network site, Orkut, have been used to organize criminal activity and promote child pornography. "
