Internet & Networking "The United States' global trade representative has strongly criticised a perceived preference on the part of large Australian organisations for hosting their data on-shore in Australia, claiming it created a significant trade barrier for US technology firms and was based on a misinterpretation of the US Patriot Act." It is somewhat entertaining that Australian citizens are apparently more concerned about the crazy Patriot Act (the name alone is hurl-inducing) than US citizens are.

The US sure seems awfully concerned about a foreign company. Too bad they don't show that much concern for their own domestic companies.

They're not concerned about a foreign company, they're concerned that someone put a wrench in the "fuck your local companies and businesses, buy our stuff" machinery.
