Biggest tech companies rally against surveillance
cerebral cerebral is offline 12-10-2013, 10:18 AM

We are spending more and more time online
and our communications are steadily moving to the constantly-connected space.
But as is uncovered constantly said space is in persistent threat
of unsanctioned spying and general breaching of privacy
by government agencies all over the world,
such as the infamous National Security Agency in the US.

In order to protect its businesses and the people using them the biggest companies
on the web have formed an alliance to pursue a reform,
detailed in five principles.
Those companies are Microsoft, Google, Yahoo,
Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and AOL.

The principles are as follows - Limiting governments' rights to collect users'
information, Oversight and accountability,
Transparency about government demands.
The list goes on with respecting the free flow of information
and avoiding conflicts among governments.

The first principle requests that governments limit their surveillance to individuals,
suspected of wrongdoing and not collect bulk data of internet communications.
Also said governments should limit their ability
to compel service providers (like network carriers) to hand over user data.

The second principle wants these government demands for user data
be fulfilled with transparent and public rulings by independent courts
and not be hidden from the public eye.

Next up companies want to be able to reveal specifics to users about government demands.
"Governments should allow companies to publish the number and nature of government demands for user information."

Finally companies want a robust and principled framework of laws
between governments concerning data collection
so as to avoid conflicts between governments.

These tech companies are actually in collusion with the US government's mass spying.
