Re: I mean...

said by baineschile:

I am all for consumer privacy. But if someone is doing something illegal online (soliciting children, setting up murder plans, etc) and the goverment wants their information, I would want the companies to hand it over. I would be really angry if something happened to someone I love, because an ISP wouldnt work with law enforcement because of their consumer protection issues.

So you're saying it's ok if law enforcement goes on fishing expeditions and request information on random people without valid court orders hoping they'll get a bite?

The rankings in the article are NOT "which companies do not comply with valid court orders" but rather which companies challenge illegal or over-broad court orders and which ones then inform the targeted user (unless the order prohibits doing so).

You can keep your temporary illusions of safety/security. I'll keep my liberty thank you very much.
