Online privacy faces court challenge

An interesting article coming out of the United Kingdom that spy agency GSHQ has breached the privacy of tens of millions of Europeans.

“[there is a] lack of democratic accountability and judicial oversight. People living across the UK, Europe, the USA and beyond need the courts to protect their rights and start the process of re-establishing public trust.”

As some of our data is stored in the United Kingdom and United States, this is an issue that is relevant to Australians as well. Currently it seems we don’t know who actually has access to our data, which is a real privacy concern.
