Google Hands Wikileaks Volunteer’s Gmail Data to U.S. Government

From the article:


The idea of an ISP handing over user data to governments without the aid of a search warrant has some troubling implications for privacy advocates and civil liberties proponents.

Have any threats been made against the bull?

If you’re thinking of acquiring a company and want to keep it a secret, tell everyone in the company, let them all in on the truth. Say, “Listen, if this gets out, we’ll probably lose the deal, so we’re all in this together.” People are getting more sophisticated. The only way to deal is by being honest and open and truthful.
