Windows 7: Judge: FBI Doesn't Need a Warrant to Access Google Customer Data

Judge: FBI Doesn't Need a Warrant to Access Google Customer Data

Quote:
In what looks very much like a blow to that whole Constitutional thing about due process, a federal judge has ordered Google to release customer data to the FBI, despite the fact that the FBI has no warrant for the information.

The FBI made its request via 19 "National Security Letters." Here's CNET with a short explainer on what National Security Letters are:

Quote:
NSLs are controversial because they allow FBI officials to send secret requests to Web and telecommunications companies requesting "name, address, length of service," and other account information about users as long as it's relevant to a national security investigation. No court approval is required, and disclosing the existence of the FBI's secret requests is not permitted.
