NSA may continue to gather metadata calls




US security NSA may continue to gather metadata calls. That particular a higher court Friday. This removes a previous judgment that the collection of data called illegal, to the trash.

NSA Privacy Paladins got two years ago to the right after the announcements of whistleblower Edward Snowden. They tried to collect metadata from the NSA to a halt. A judge did at that time, in December 2013, agree. He called the gathering of the data – the time of the calls and the numbers dialed – in violation of privacy laws.

A higher court, the US Court of Appeals in Columbia, ruled Friday that the verdict was not justified. An activist who filed suit the case, according to the three justices could not prove that the NSA has collected data. The activist called this according to The Wall Street Journal a ‘disgrace’ and he would also have claimed that “an uninformed first-year law student could have written this statement in a day.”

The judgment of the Court of Appeals however did not so much say in the milk. The US Senate adopted in June, already has a different law that stated that the US government under custom rules may continue to collect phone data until 2019. The only major difference is that the bulk data must be stored at the telecom companies, and no longer at the NSA .

The NSA must now proceed to remove the previously collected metadata Americans. The service there was already stopped. From November 29, the data will not be used in surveys. Then they are ‘asap’ removed, was previously known. That did not start because of the lawsuit. Possibly the judgment of Friday ensures that the NSA data removed earlier.
