EFF hade det bästa aprilskämtet

Electronic Frontier Foundation hade gårdagens bästa april skämt – EU vill bygga en mur runt USA.

EFF inledde sitt nyhetsbrev den första april med att berätta att medlemmarna i the House and Senate Intelligence Committees kallat till presskonferens och bett om ursöktt för att de blandat ihop “oversight”, förbiseende, med ordet “overlook”,  överseende.

Utskottet hade trott att de skulle förbise underättelseorganisationernas övervakning.


European Union Commissioner for Justice Vera Jourova announced plans today to permanently protect Europeans’ data from U.S. government spying with the newest transnational data agreement: Privacy Wall. Once approved by the European Commission, the EU will begin constructing a thirty-foot wall around the United States. Only U.S. tech companies that comply with EU privacy restrictions and prohibit U.S. government access to their data will be given fiber optic grappling hooks to transport Europeans’ data across the Atlantic, over the wall, and back to their U.S.-based servers. U.S. lawmakers appeared unfazed by U.S. companies’ complaints that Privacy Wall will effectively kill their business abroad, but they responded to alarm bells raised by officials in the intelligence community who are concerned about losing generalized access to Europeans’ data.
