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.

So my conclusion is: In order to stop the spying, stop the spies from doing what they do, and stop their objects from happily helping them! This means: Remove their infrastructures, disturb their operations, cause trouble on their side.

Pfh. Not logging everything, encrypting everything in a way that you can't decrypt it and not voluntarily giving out all the information you can already goes a long way.

First, it will have to be a "registered business" so people start recognizing it seriously. It will of course have to cost money (because "if it's for free, it's shit"). This creates several dependencies to the state (which runs the spying), and it will probably not officially allow a company to act against the state's goals.

And? There's plenty of countries that do not have laws that require you to divulge everything you've got on your servers.

You only seem to believe that it's not worth doing anything unless you can fix *everything* at once, something that I disagree with.
