In stark contrast to Tuesday’s revelations regarding vast and blatant violations of privacy rights by Yahoo on behalf of the United States government, it was announced the same day that encrypted chat app Signal had won a year-long fight against the Feds over a federal subpoena demanding logs concerning two of the app’s users.
The ACLU stated yesterday:
In far too many cases across the country, the government appears to have reversed the presumption that the First Amendment establishes, opting to keep secret information about its demands for private data where transparency is required and would serve the public good. Today — after getting the government to back down on one of these recent secrecy overreaches — the ACLU and our client, Open Whisper Systems (OWS), are publishing a series of documents that help illuminate just how much the exception has become the rule in American courtrooms and law enforcement. Indeed, that they are public at all is remarkable by itself.
