Spies Without Borders Series: Using Domestic Networks to Spy on the World

Much of the U.S. media coverage of the NSA revelations has concentrated on its impact on the constitutional rights of U.S. Internet users. But what about the billions of Internet users around the world whose private information is stored in U.S. servers, or whose data travels across U.S. networks? 

Below, we're publishing a series of articles looking into how the information disclosed in the NSA leaks affect the international community and how they highlight one part of an international system of surveillance that dissolves what national privacy protections any of us have, whereever we live. The Spies Without Borders series is a joint project with CIPPICYou can follow the Spies Without Borders series by subscribing to EFF on Twitteridenti.caFacebookGoogle Plus or at openmedia.ca
