EFF backs full disclosure of fed spying

by Curtis Lee Fulton

The Electronic Frontier Foundation – the Internet’s ACLU – says it backs Google’s request for full disclosure of fed spying. EFF senior staff attorney Matt Zimmerman:

A national conversation about the lawfulness of government surveillance programs cannot take place in the dark. At minimum, companies like Google and Microsoft should be able to publicly disclose aggregate information such as how many secret surveillance orders for their customers were received and the type of information sought. Other companies, similarly entrusted with sensitive customer information, should be permitted to do the same.
