Companies Call For Government Surveillance Reform
Google, AOL, Yahoo, Microsoft and other companies named as previously cooperating with the NSA's PRISM program
have launched a new campaign urging global governments to reform their surveillance practices, and are asking the United States to take the lead. A new Reform Government Surveillance
website will operate alongside ads placed in numerous papers calling for governments to begin designing rules for surveillance oversight, while being more transparent about what kind of data is being collected. Empty PR gesture to deflect attention from themselves, or a serious call for reform?
