Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft defy authorities, notify users of secret data demands

Apple, Facebook, others defy authorities, increasingly notify users of secret data demands after Snowden revelations - The Washington Post: "Fueling the shift is the industry’s eagerness to distance itself from the government after last year’s disclosures about National Security Agency surveillance of online services. Apple, Microsoft, Facebook and Google all are updating their policies to expand routine notification of users about government data seizures, unless specifically gagged by a judge or other legal authority, officials at all four companies said. Yahoo announced similar changes in July."

Thank you Edward Snowden.
