EFF has AT&T by the balls


The Electronic Frontier Foundation is suing AT&T for billions of dollars in damages for handing over private customer data to the US National Security Agency:

The lawsuit also alleges that AT&T has given the government unfettered access to its over 300 terabyte "Daytona" database of caller information -- one of the largest databases in the world. Moreover, by opening its network and databases to wholesale surveillance by the NSA, EFF alleges that AT&T has violated the privacy of its customers and the people they call and email, as well as broken longstanding communications privacy laws.
