Yttrandefriheten kan va finito när som helst på internet - om USA:s rättsväsende får bestämma

Ett antal chefer för rättsväsendet i USA:s olika delstater (state attorney generals) har gjort en gemensam skrivelse till den amerikanska kongressen och begärt att alla webbsajter i USA ska ansvara för allt som användarna gör och skriver på respektive sajter. Detta skulle i s f  effektivt ta död på större delen av Internet. Går förslaget igenom innebär det att sajter som YouTube, Twitter, Facebook och alla forum med servers i USA (ex. Flashback) får lägga ner det mesta av verksamheten...

  2. -NSA paid millions to Internet companies to cover surveillance program costs-

    RT August 23

    Top-secret national security documents leaked to the Guardian newspaper reveal that the United States government compensated the tech companies that signed on to participate in the controversial NSA spy program known as Prism.

    The Guardian published on Friday new documentation attributed to former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden in which it’s suggested that the US National Security Agency spent millions of dollars making sure the biggest names on the Internet were kept compliant with an international surveillance program disclosed by the leaker earlier this year.

    According to the paperwork provided by Snowden and discussed by the Guardian’s Ewen MacAskill on Friday, the NSA emptied millions of dollars on ensuring Google, Yahoo, Microsoft and Facebook were able to share information sent over the Web with the federal government.

    “The material provides the first evidence of a financial relationship between the tech companies and the NSA,” wrote MacAskill.

    The Guardian article cites a top-secret NSA document from December 2012 in which the agency said through a newsletter that it spent millions to keep the tech companies cooperating with the government after the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ruled that it was a violation of the US Constitution’s Fourth Amendment to be collecting purely domestic communications through the Prism program.

    "Last year's problems resulted in multiple extensions to the certifications' expiration dates which cost millions of dollars for Prism providers to implement each successive extension – costs covered by Special Source Operations," it reads in part. [...]

  3. --New Zealand has direct access to US surveillance--

    New Zealand’s police and intelligence services have direct access to US surveillance systems such as PRISM, to monitor email and capture various data traffic, according to police affidavits in connection with the raid on Kim Dotcom’s mansion.

    The news that the Organised and Financial Crime Agency New Zealand (OFCANZ) requested assistance from the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) was revealed by blogger Keith Ng on his On Point blog.

    He discovered that the police provided the GCSB – the government’s signals intelligence unit – with a list of indicators for scanning emails and other information traffic generated by Kim Dotcom and his colleagues and co-founders at Megaupload.

    New Zealand and Australia use a ‘selector’ categorization system akin to the NSA’s XKEYSCORE, revealed recently by whistleblower Edward Snowden in his set of PRISM revelations about unsanctioned US spying on people across the globe.

    PRISM is an all-reaching computer surveillance system run by the US government and the NSA.
