Tech Companies to Post NSA Request Details in U.S. Deal

The Bloomberg article is dated Jan 27, 2014:

Quote:
Facebook Inc. (FB), Google Inc. (GOOG) and other Internet companies will be able to publicly disclose details about orders compelling them to give the government e-mails and other Internet data about their users.

The U.S. Justice Department today announced an agreement with the companies allowing them to publish, for the first time, information about how many orders they receive under the so-called Prism program, as well as national security letters.

That's all well and good but I'd prefer it if they gave them the one finger salute instead.

I don't know if they can do that. The point is that they weren't even allowed to say that the requests were being made.

But it will be interesting to see if anything comes out of this: https://thedaywefightback.org/

From the press release:
Quote:
On Anniversary of Aaron Swartz's Tragic Passing, Leading Internet Groups and Online Platforms Announce Day of Activism Against NSA Surveillance

A broad coalition of activist groups, companies, and online platforms will hold a worldwide day of activism in opposition to the NSA's mass spying regime on February 11th. Dubbed "The Day We Fight Back", the day of activism was announced on the eve of the anniversary of the tragic passing of activist and technologist Aaron Swartz. The protest is both in his honor and in celebration of the victory over the Stop Online Piracy Act two years ago this month, which he helped spur.

Participants including Access, Demand Progress, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Fight for the Future, Free Press, BoingBoing, Reddit, Mozilla, ThoughtWorks, and more to come, will join potentially millions of Internet users to pressure lawmakers to end mass surveillance -- of both Americans and the citizens of the whole world.
