EPIC Grandstanding, Makes Up Google-FBI Link

from the oh-come-on dept

The folks at EPIC usually fight the good fight to protect privacy rights, but they’ve just gone completely overboard this time. They’ve filed a Freedom of Information request with the FBI worded in a way to suggest that the FBI is working with Google to launch Gmail as a way to spy on people. Once again, if people dislike the idea of Gmail so much, they have every right not to sign up for it. As if it was even needed, Google has responded by saying that they’ve never spoken to the FBI about Gmail.
