> Hi,
> In light of the recent thread on journalism, I wanted to share this link
> about Skype:
> "With 250 million monthly connected users, Skype is one of the most
> popular services for making phone calls as well as chatting over the
> Internet. If you have friends, family or business contacts abroad,
> chances are you are using Skype to keep in contact. Having said that,
> you are probably not aware that all your phone calls and text chats can
> be monitored by the censorship authorities in China. And if you are
> aware, chances are that you do not consent to such surveillence.
> Microsoft, however, assumes that you do consent, as expressed in their
> Privacy Policy:
> "Skype, Skype's local partner, or the operator or company facilitating
> your communication may provide personal data, communications content
> and/or traffic data to an appropriate judicial, law enforcement or
> government authority lawfully requesting such information. Skype will
> provide reasonable assistance and information to fulfill this request
> and you hereby consent to such disclosure.
> All the best,
> Jacob
