Yahoo Is Permitted to Declassify Documents in PRISM Case

Yahoo Is Permitted to Declassify Documents in PRISM Case

The fact that Yahoo stood up to government orders to let the NSA gain access to its emails and confidential data might just let the company go scot-free. The documents that Yahoo is about to declassify will prove once and for all that Yahoo didn’t give in so easily to PRISM’s bullying tactics. According to the Daily Dot, the Department of Justice is about to peruse the documents that will prove Yahoo’s innocence in the whole affair. At least half a month is required for the reviewing process to be completed. Till then Yahoo’s fate remains hung in the balance. A spokesperson from Yahoo said that the company was very pleased with this decision. It seems justice has been done.

Five years ago under the FISA Act, Yahoo had petitioned against any such controversial steps of revealing private information to the government. The courts had however overruled the cautious approach taken by Yahoo. Among the companies that are now answerable can be included: Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Apple, Microsoft and various other Net firms. The fact that they provided the NSA with vital statistics on their data base remains the elephant in the room that no one is willing to acknowledge. Yahoo has termed the allegations against it false. Now it finally has a chance to absolve itself of any wrongdoing. It can show evidence that it tried to fight the spying plans of PRISM. It seems to be a case of the Federal government against the Internet giants. The outcome remains to be seen.
