    Apparently it will store all of the telecommunication data in the USA.

    Don't see why that's such a big deal.

    Doesn't the NSA already have a record of all the emails ever sent by US citizens?

    Maybe the Utah Data Center allows three letter agencies quicker and easier access to all the data of USA citizens. Or perhaps anyone who uses USA proxies will get their data stored in the UDC? Let's say you live in China and you use a USA proxy then your data will get stored by the UDC. Or what if the UDC stores data from any internet service or website that's hosted in the USA? So if you happen to use such a service or site, then your data will get stored by the UDC.

    What's the scope of the UDC? Does it only cover USA citizens or does it cover citizens from other countries as well?

    Is everyone's privacy severely hampered by it? Or are its impacts on privacy greatly exaggerated?
