Google vs. DOJ/NSA

Google warned in its statement that if the DoJ gets its way, the FBI will be authorized to hack into servers regardless of their geopolitical location, thus giving the US government unrestrained access to endless amounts of personal data around the globe.

As Google explains it, such covert invasions of privacy, “may take place anywhere in the world. This concern is not theoretical. … [T]he nature of today’s technology is such that warrants issued under the proposed amendment will in many cases end up authorizing the government to conduct searches outside the United States.”

The issue is raising serious concerns for civil watchdog groups, like the American Civil Liberties Union, who fear the government – not only refusing to retreat in the aftermath of the 2013 Snowden revelations, which exposed the tentacles of the National Security Agency wrapped around a large swath of the planet – but is actually moving recklessly ahead with even more obtrusive methods.
