+ - Department of Justice Announces New Disclosure Agreement With Tech Companies

Submitted by rjmarvin
rjmarvin (3001897) writes "Major tech companies like Apple, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft and Yahoo that until now were bound a gag order from saying anything about NSA data collection, can now publicly disclose http://sdt.bz/67646 the number of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) requests they receive for customer data in a given year...eventually. The catch is that they have to wait two years after a new data request to reveal the information publicly to give law enforcement agencies the time to act. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder made a joint statement http://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/... with intelligence director James Clapper about the deal, and in response the tech companies have withdrawn their FISA lawsuits."
