[liberationtech] Call for Open Letter on Skype

At GreatFire.org, we would be VERY happy to sign such a letter. As we wrote
in
https://en.greatfire.org/blog/2012/dec/china-listening-skype-microsoft-assumes-you-approvewe
believe that the current policy is particularly dangerous to Chinese
users.

We believe that Microsoft should at the very least make the differences
between the regular Skype client and Tom  clear, allow Chinese users the
option to download the regular client, notify Skype users if the user at
the other end is using the Tom Online version of Skype and apologize to all
Skype users for having potentially shared all their private information
with Chinese authorities.
