Larry Page on the NSA ‘PRISM’ to-do: ‘What the …?’
Google’s chief government this afternoon weighed in on the reports from The Guardian and The Washington Post that have created a bit of a firestorm over personal liberty versus anti-terrorism efforts. Parsing Larry Page’s post, which is co-authored with Google Chief Legal Officer David Drummond, you get the following:
- First, we have not joined any program that would give the U.S. government—or any other government—direct access to our servers
- Second, we provide user data to governments only in accordance with the law. Our legal team reviews each and every request, and frequently pushes back when requests are overly broad or don’t follow the correct process.
- Finally, this episode confirms what we have long believed—there needs to be a more transparent approach.
