Sprint downplays report it shared GPS data with feds

In a blog post, Kevin Bankston, a senior staff attorney for the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), said that what Soghoian reported was "more shocking and frightening" than anyone imagined.

"Eight million would have been a shocking number, even if it had included every single legal request to every single carrier for every single type of customer information; That Sprint alone received eight million requests just from law enforcement only for GPS data is absolutely mind-boggling," Bankston wrote.
