    EU Citizens Warned Not To Use US Cloud Services Over Spying Fears

    http://yro.slashdot.org/story/13/01/...r-spying-fears

    "Leading privacy expert Caspar Bowden, warned European citizens not to use cloud services hosted in the U.S. over spying fears. Bowden, former privacy adviser to Microsoft Europe, explained at a panel discussion hosted at the recent Computers, Privacy and Data Protection conference in Brussels, that a section in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Amendments Act 2008 (FISAAA) permits U.S. intelligence agencies to access data owned by non-U.S. citizens on cloud storage hosed by U.S. companies, if their activity is deemed to affect U.S. foreign policy. Bowden claimed the Act allows for purely political spying of activists, protesters and political groups. Bowden also pointed out that amendments to the EU's data protection regulation proposal, introduce specific loopholes that permit FISAAA surveillance. The president of Estonia, Toomas Hendrik Ilves (at a separate panel discussion) commented that, "If it is a US company it's the FBI's jurisdiction and if you are not a US citizen then they come and look at whatever you have if it is stored on a US company server". The European Data Protection Supervisor declined to comment but an insider indicated that the authority is looking into the matter."

    The FAILURE of the United States Government to operate and maintain an
    Honest Money System , which frees the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, is the single largest contributing factor to the World's current Economic Crisis.

    If U.S. services could be trusted, then there would be more good I.T. jobs.
