“Think about when you listen to a song on the radio,” he explained. “You are not paying for it, it’s not illegal to do it, because the rights have been paid for on top, beforehand, by the radio station, by the network." - NO!!! Y00000 think about it... Its paid for by revenue from advertising... which I listen to. So no one listens for free smacktard... its the commercials we listen to that pays for your crappy music. - "“We are the people creating the future – not manufacturers of computers or cables. We are the extraordinary."" - Entitled narcissist much? - watch?v=x8dqzTl0vUI Maybe we need to take his "computers" and "cables" away and see where this... "artist" would be today.

Re: You are on thin AFTER any court order. Cut your losses and fight elsewhere.
"You are on thin AFTER... slow down blue... your typos and bad grammar like... "It's waste of our precious"... your fingers are moving faster than your brain... just couldnt wait to puke up your nonsense huh blue? - "I'm intrigued by dawning recognition that a "combative and generally unpleasant person" does not make a good case." - You looked in the mirror?

Why unnecessary? If they are subverting security on hardware without the users knowledge or companies making the equipments knowledge AND with no court order... then its totally illegal. - The harm is in user trust. After this fiasco, our server team now has to spend more time setting up servers and monitoring the outgoing traffic. We have implemented radio frequency detection to monitor our servers before they get near our data center. Like Google and others we had to waste the resources to set up encryption between our sites. Its been a nightmare, but we have to do all we can to make sure our customer info is safe. All it takes is one person not as honorable as Snowden to abuse the NSA wiretaps to obtain hundreds of thousands of credit card info.
An NSA spokeswoman, Vanee Vines, says, “N.S.A.’s activities are focused and specifically deployed against — and only against — valid foreign intelligence targets in response to intelligence requirements. - Funny... isn't that what they said about the bulk collection of Phone and internet traffic when the guy from AT&T outed them? - The NSA has proven many times they are liars and cannot be trusted to follow the law of the land. - Why should we believe them now, or ever again?
