    Thanks for posting, Tom.

    "...the United States and Turkey are the only developed nations in the world without a comprehensive law protecting consumer privacy.
    ...Today, the US is the undisputed leader in cloud computing services, but international competitors are increasingly advertising the fact that their services aren’t US-based.
    "
    If this lack of proper legislation will hurt US cloud businesses, it's likely to be introduced real fast.

    Doesn't matter what law they will always spy on those that needed to be spy'd on. I believe you make your own privacy

    It's sad that the only reason they would do this is to protect the interest of corporations.
