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?

So, what they got? If they received large cash and public incentives/protection in detriment of other multinationals, they violated a handful of WTO rules and things can get far worse for American government in that case.


The deal is simple. Be nice to the government and you can break as many laws as you want. Don't bother about paying corporate taxes, defrauding investors or nasty foreign companies suing you.
