  •  Complying is expensive, I'd guess (4+ / 0-)

    Diverting personnel to fulfill requests and installing & maintaining equipment/software to execute secure searches for the mass of stuff the FBI wants has got to be a significant cost when numbers of ongoing investigations reach the tens of thousands.  One wonders what kind of security and office real estate complications and costs these NSLs impose on an otherwise civilian business operation as well.

    I'd like to think that Google is coming from a principled position on civil liberties and Constitutional rule-of-law concerns, but they evidently have been putting up with the rigamarole for quite a number of years before bringing their objections to the court.

    •  Don't worry, us taxpayers are subsidizing... (3+ / 0-)
