A lot of people recoiled when Google CEO Eric Schmidt told the folks at CNBC, "If you have something that you don't want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn't be doing it in the first place." Schmidt continued on to state that in the United States we are all subject to the Patriot Act and it is possible that information stored could be made available to the authorities. However, many people (including some of us here in the "office") had a problem with Schmidt's comment.
Interestingly enough, as Valley Wag points out, it was Schmidt who blacklisted CNet reporters for a full year because of a story highlighting privacy concerns. The story shared several nuggets of information about Schmidt that CNet had gleaned from Google searches. These included salary, neighborhood, hobbies and political donations.
