Legal This story is getting bigger and bigger. Even though most Americans probably already knew, it is now official: the United States government, through its National Security Agency, is collecting the communications and data of all American citizens, and of non-Americans using American services, through a wide collaboration with the large companies in technology, like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and so on. Interestingly enough, the NSA itself, as well as the US government, have repeatedly and firmly denied this massive spying on Americans and non-Americans took place at all.

It is okay until it's used to protect citizens against terrorism.

BUT...

If it is used for any other purpose like the Echelon was...

Remember Airbus versus Boing case....

So, if you are evolved in ANY commercial bid against a major US-related company: use strong encryption with even your own algo !
