Apparent verification that Google is pushing hard to be allowed more transparency by the government re FISA, etc.: "Open Secret About Google's Surveillance Case No Longer Secret" http://j.mp/143mosa (WSJ) "The Justice Department recently won a court battle to keep an Internet company from talking about federal demands for user data, arguing that even disclosing the company's name would damage national security.' But then, after months of arguments, the department appears to have been foiled by its own redaction process, which left the name "Google" on one page that was posted Friday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. The case and Google's role in it underscore a tension between some Silicon Valley companies and the government over national security surveillance and the secrecy surrounding it. Google has been pushing back against data-gathering tools called national security letters in two federal courts since this spring." - - - --Lauren-- Lauren Weinstein (firstname.lastname@example.org): http://www.vortex.com/lauren Co-Founder: People For Internet Responsibility: http://www.pfir.org/pfir-info Founder: - Network Neutrality Squad: http://www.nnsquad.org - PRIVACY Forum: http://www.vortex.com/privacy-info Member: ACM Committee on Computers and Public Policy Lauren's Blog: http://lauren.vortex.com Google+: http://google.com/+LaurenWeinstein Twitter: http://twitter.com/laurenweinstein Tel: +1 (818) 225-2800 / Skype: vortex.com _______________________________________________ nnsquad mailing list http://lists.nnsquad.org/mailman/listinfo/nnsquad
