12 a.m. (midnight): Radio News: Google Offers No Expectation of Privacy From "Free Speech Radio News": "Internet titan Google says G-mail and Google Apps users have no reasonable expectation of privacy. This argument comes within a motion to dismiss lawsuits brought against it by users alleging privacy violations. The company says users consent in the Terms of Service to automated scanning of email in exchange for use of Gmail. The 39-page legal argument by the company's attorneys also states federal law allows providers to "lawfully receive and access electronic communications involving their users." Google argues it is also protected against the legal arguments of non-users who communicate with Gmail users because "Under federal law, the consent of a single party to a communication is complete defense to any liability and so the consent of the Gmail user alone is sufficient to bar a claim." Two plaintiffs argue they were pressured into accepting Gmail's terms in order to receive official email associated with their university, which had contracted services via Google Apps. According to Google, Gmail has over 400 million users worldwide.
