Recent news about the National Security Agency monitoring citizens’ email and telephone contacts has caused outrage, yet big Internet companies such as Google regularly mines users’ Internet and email accounts to compile data. Is there a difference?
30% 1. There’s a big difference. I sign off when I agree to an Internet user agreement, even if I don’t read, or understand, it. I never signed a user agreement with Big Brother.
