Ever since the PRISM scandal was leaked, a lot of petitions relating to the NSA data requests and the details have been made in courts. The latest development is from Dropbox who backed LinkedIn’s opinion about the whole deal. Like LinkedIn, Dropbox said they too believe the NSA requests should be transparent. As of now the disclosure is very limited and Dropbox is going fight the US govt.
Dropbox has filed a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court brief which says the NSA should allow Dropbox to disclose the exact number of National Security requests. According to them, the ban on the exact number violates the right in the First Amendment. We don’t know if this will make any difference, but it sure gives us a hope.
