Remember how Google got themselves in trouble over storing data collected via those Street View cars?

Well, there are reports via places like the New York Times and BBC that South Korean police raided Google and took files, hard drives and documents.

The police say, "we will investigate Google Korea officials and scrutinize the data we confiscated today." We intend to find out what kinds of data they have collected and how much. We will try to retrieve all the original data illegally collected and stored through domestic Wi-Fi networks from the Google headquarters."
