EU Adopts 'Net Neutrality' Rules, Keeps Loopholes Open - TorrentFreak - 0 views

  •  
    " Ernesto on October 27, 2015 C: 25 Breaking The European Parliament adopted Europe's first net neutrality rules today, as part of the new telecoms package. However, many net neutrality proponents see the new regulation as a loss rather than a win, as it leaves the door open for widespread throttling and paid prioritization."

Federal court rules in favor of NSA bulk snooping, White House happy - RT USA - 3 views

  •  
    "Despite the opposition of the US public and lawmakers to NSA surveillance, the courts keep handing the Obama administration the license to snoop. A US appeals court just threw out a 2013 verdict against the NSA, to White House approval. "

    I've read the court's decision. The article in RT overstates the breadth of the court's holding very substantially. The court did not throw the case out. Instead, by a 2-1 vote it vacated the district court's grant of a preliminary injunction and remanded the case for further proceedings including for the lower court judge to decide whether discovery should be allowed. The third judge would have thrown the case out. The decision does, however, steepen the slope the plaintiffs must climb to prevail in a renewed effort to obtain an injunction. That is regrettable, in my view. The article states: "The decision vindicates the government's stance that NSA's bulk surveillance programs are constitutional, the White House said Friday." In fact, the court's decision does not even touch on the topic of the program's constitutionality, reaching only the issue of standing. The article should either have omitted the statement or pointed out the error in the government's statement.

    # ! thank You, Paul, for the observation. anyway, what it seems is that Citizens worldwide are going to be spied... judges aside, and -I'm afraid- not always with 'security issues' in the Agency's mind...

    I agree, Gonzalo. Most of the "terrorist" groups the U.S. claims to be concerned with were in fact created by the U.S. Terrorism is simply the easiest means for the government to defend these surveillance programs. But the disclosures that the NSA spies for other purposes just doesn't get the coverage in mainstream media that might otherwise force changes. It's the Politics of Fear.

    "Texto de Elon Musk de hoy, 12 de junio de 2014, para anunciar la renuncia de Tesla Motors a todas sus patentes. Sin duda, toda una declaración de principios por parte de la compañía, a favor del movimiento Open Source y en contra de las patentes. "Ayer había una pared de patentes de Tesla en la recepción de nuestras oficinas centrales en Palo Alto. Ya no va a estar. Han sido eliminadas, en el espíritu del movimiento Open Source, por el progreso de la tecnología de los vehículos eléctricos."
