Verizon transparency report reveals 320,000 data requests in 2013

http://j.mp/1hjGkP8  (Washington Post)

   "The vast majority of requests, about 164,000, came from law
    enforcement subpoenas, followed by about 71,000 court orders. In 2013,
    the company fielded 7,800 requests for real-time information about a
    person's outbound and inbound calls - but of those, only about 1,500
    were actual wiretap requests leading to the surveillance of a call's
    content.  The report also shows a growing government appetite for
    location data."
