Hi,

"Top secret PRISM program claims direct access to servers of firms
including Google, Facebook and Apple and others.

"Some of the world's largest internet brands are claimed to be part of
the information-sharing program since its introduction in 2007.
Microsoft – which is currently running an advertising campaign with the
slogan "Your privacy is our priority" – was the first, with collection
beginning in December 2007.

"It was followed by Yahoo in 2008; Google, Facebook and PalTalk in 2009;
YouTube in 2010; Skype and AOL in 2011; and finally Apple, which joined
the program in 2012. The program is continuing to expand, with other
providers due to come online.

"Collectively, the companies cover the vast majority of online email,
search, video and communications networks.

The next person that recommends Skype to human rights activists is
completely discredited. Stop it and stop it now.

Ta ta,
