    Service providers can only remain in business if customers can trust the service provider to keep their private data private. That's why Google is trying to show that they complied with legal court orders for specific data (which, IMO, they should do), but didn't give the government access to all the data, which is the claim.

      could be simultaneously true. Google denies the allegations that the NSA has direct access to Google services. I wonder who Google buys their bandwidth from? Maybe the NSA has servers co-located at various Internet backbone facilities where they do deep packet inspection on trunk data and copy all the network streams for Google traffic. It may well be that Google never gave the NSA total access, but the NSA didn't actually need Google to do so and got it anyway.

      +++ The law is a weapon used to bludgeon us peasants into submission. It is not to be applied to the monied elite.
