Back in the stone age of the Internet when everyone wondered what the hell HTTP:// was for (you know around 1993 or so). I created a fan site for StarTrek. It was a simple web page where people could leave comments, post pictures and discuss what we all liked about the show and movies. Within a few months I recieved a nastygram in my mail from Paramount basically saying that if I didn't take my site down they would sick their lawyers on me. Seeing as how I had no money (I was starving student at the time and made the site to play with the new web thingy technology.) I put notice on the website word for word of the nastygram and shut the site down about one week later. It sure didn't make any friends for Paramount.
You should know by now that the M.O. of nearly all American companies is to go running to the courts to try and beat the hell out of their competion. Competing and innovating in the marketplace is for old school woosies. Don't you know how things are done in America?
It is my opinion that when the US stopped believing in the insane idea that RSA encryption was munitions (to prevent encryption from going overseas) the NSA had broken the encryption. Encrypt all you want -- it just means there is a delay before the NSA will have the plain text.
I suppose if you get a group together each submitting a FOIA request for differt stuff and then put all the pieces of the puzzle together you may find something interesting. As it is now all you get is a big fat [REDACTED] paper where there are more lines of black marker than there are words.
This revelation is about as enlightening as knowing countries spy on each other and use their spying to support their own interests. This is not shocking and it is not news. Sad, wrong and probably not ethical, but still this is the way things have been since we all came down out of the trees.
