Tech Firms Fight Further FBI Attempts to Expand Surveillance

Tech Firms Fight Further FBI Attempts to Expand Surveillance

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and tech firms continue fighting over whether Internet browsing records are the same as telephone bill records. The latest battle is focused on a rewrite of the American surveillance law that would mean the justice department could access people’s web browsing history, location data and even email records without the court order through “national security letters” (NSLs).


The FBI claims that such data is covered implicitly under current statute, because the applicable law was written years ago and explicitly covers information normally associated with telephone records. This is why the FBI is lobbying Congress to make clear this provision also applies to the digital equivalent.

In response, the largest tech firms including Google, Facebook and Yahoo sent a letter warning Congress they would fight any efforts to rewrite the law, because this expansion of the NSL statute would dramatically expand the ability of the law enforcement agencies to get private users’ information without court oversight.

This marks another fight over a provision in the US law that could dramatically affect how the country conducts terrorism investigations. The FBI used to rely on the controversial NSLs to collect certain types of data quickly from tech firms, as they don’t require a warrant and usually are coupled with a gag order that prevents the recipients from discussing them. Now the FBI complains that cases are getting slowed down because the companies increasingly refuse to cooperate.

The tech firms respond that the gag orders create mistrust and eventual embarrassment if the details are disclosed.

SirSeedsAlot avatarFBI isn't even the problem. FBI conducts legitimate investigations for the most part. It's the other 3-letters that already have contracts in place with these tech firms to siphon data. In most cases those contracts are secret so people running the company don't even know it's happening, or don't want to know. They just want the money.

edddy avatarlet take another bite out of the Fourth Amendment.(the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.)

analogkid6103 avatarDon't forget they also have the FISA Court and the Warrants they issue. Which also are secret and...

No avatarSomething very bad is about to happen! NSA already has secret search warrants(breaking into peoples homes while not home). What is also a little off is that this same article was once titled differently on ET. Not to mention the constant renewal of the article "How to prevent government agencies from tracking your torrent activity". But we only live once I guess.
