    'Constitutional/Unconstitutional' as it applies to the NSA data-capturing.

    The data does belong to you, not to the Telecoms.  The fact that the agencies have to get a 'warrant' to get the info from the Telcoms shows that even the NSA recognizes the data as belonging to the individual, rather that to the telcoms.  

    If the data belonged to the Telecoms, the NSA wouldn't have had to spend billions setting up separate Data Centers to house their copies of your data.  If the data belonged to the Telecoms, not to the individual, the Agencies could simply get a court order, not a warrant.
