34 ISPs subpoenaed by US government

The controversial Department of Justice inquiry that asked Google Inc. to turn over millions of Internet search queries is much broader than previously known, with subpoenas going to at least 34 companies, according to newly available public documents.
The Justice Department demanded documents from 34 companies, including local security companies Symantec Corp. and McAfee Inc. and San Francisco Internet company LookSmart Ltd., according to subpoenas obtained and posted online by technology publication InformationWeek. Also subpoenaed were Internet service providers such as Verizon, AT&T, EarthLink and the former SBC Communications.
