    A New Twist in International Relations: The Corporate Keep-My-Data-Out-of-the-U.S. Cl

    By now, we've heard from tech companies such as Facebook, Google and Cisco Systems that the National Security Agency's spying poses a threat to their international business and, in Cisco's case, isalready hurting it. So what does that threat look like, exactly, at ground level?Some companies are apparently so concerned about the NSA snooping on their data that they're requiring - in writing - that their technology suppliers store their data outside the U.S.
    In Canada, a pharmaceutical company and government agency have now both added language to that effect to their contracts with suppliers, as did a grocery chain in the U.K., according to J.J. Thompson, chief executive officer of Rook Consulting, an Indianapolis, Indiana-based security-consulting firm. He declined to name the companies, which are using Rook to manage the segmentation and keep the data out of the U.S.

    Granted the NSA started under Bush, but Obama's not only let it continue, he's fed the monster so this is now all on him.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Heya Mr.V. I wonder what takes place after they discover any companies or citizens even that can prevent them from snooping.

    It could be done but it would be expensive. Say a VPN to a central data hub that you then surf "From" and the only way to know who is actually doing the internet stuff would be if you had the database information... It's just, costly as hell is all.

    Encryption and anti-snooping/authenticity technologies are advancing pretty quickly. The issue is generally not one of forcible entry so much as shamefully giving backdoor access by court order. Locating servers outside the U.S. could conceivably give a company a small amount of relief, but the U.S. seems to ignore political boundaries when it comes to … well, everything. Judging by the ability of FATCA to strong-arm foreign banks into squealing on their customers, I see no major hurdles for FISA actions.
