Top 10 Countries Requesting
Data from Tech Companies

Top 10 Countries Requesting Data from Tech Companies - RF CafeHere is an interesting chart from Reuters that shows which countries have the highest rate of collecting data from tech companies. Google, Microsoft, Skype, and Twitter are evidently the top suppliers of personal data. I'm guessing the U.S. is at the top at least partially because the tech companies are based in the U.S. and therefore the FBI, NSA, IRS, DHS, and other 3-letter agencies are able to exert the most influence. Of course what is not shown are countries that make no pretense of granting citizens a right of personal privacy such as Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, and other Communist regimes. Our government exploits a populace that actually expects privacy because the Constitution mandates it. They don't need to heed no stinking Constitution.
