Legal And yes, the PRISM scandal is far, far from over. More and more information keeps leaking out, and the more gets out, the worse it gets. The companies involved have sent out official statements - often by mouth of their CEOs - and what's interesting is that not only are these official statements eerily similar to each other, using the same terms clearly designed by lawyers, they also directly contradict new reports from The New York Times. So, who is lying?

You receive a secret court order. You can't contest it infront of a judge, because you can't reveal it exists. If you contest it and hence you reveal it exists, you are automatically breaking the law. If you don't comply, you are also automatically breaking the law.


Well, what about ignoring it and denying ever getting it. They couldn't put you in court, since it's all hush-hush anyway. How can you break an order if nobody will acknowledge its existance? Or they'll just send out a black car with tinted windows in the middle of the night ;)
