The report covers every information request from across the world over the first half of the year - apart from those subject to national security delays. Each of those nation's administration had more than 50 percent of solicitations in truth, with the US (85 percent), United Kingdom (90 percent) and France (74 percent) striking for higher rates.
On 27 April 2016, Facebook said that it gave the Bangladesh government 24 per cent of information as Dhaka made a total of 49 requests on 57 accounts.
When it comes to the kind of requests shared by the government, Facebook says that over 9,690 requests were regarding legal process with the government and these asked for access to 13,490 user accounts. The Menlo Park, California-based company also revealed that over 110,000 pieces of Facebook content were removed over trademark infringement, while more than 37,000 were removed from Instagram. The company added that 57 percent of the data requests received from law enforcement in the United States contained a non-disclosure order that prohibited it from notifying the user, up from 50 percent in the previous report.
The US, India, UK, Germany and France submitted the most requests, accounting for 41 percent, 12 percent, nine percent, seven percent and six percent respectively.
In a foreword to the report, the company stated: "If a request appears to be deficient or overly broad, we push back, and will fight in court, if necessary".
The worldwide data on intellectual property-related takedowns is a new disclosure for Facebook as part of its biannual "Transparency Report", Chris Sonderby, a Deputy General Counsel at Facebook, said in a blog post.
From January to June, Facebook restricted content 28,036 times, an uptick of 304 percent compared to last six months of 2016.
Facebook revealed quite an eye-popping number for the claims of counterfeits. However, sheer numbers demonstrate demands hit 78,890 in the central portion of 2017, an expansion of 33 percent year-on-year and 23 percent on the past half year time frame.
