EFF Sues Feds Over Social Network Surveillance


The EFF is suing the Feds to see if they are over stepping any boundaries when it comes to tapping social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace and Twitter to investigate possible criminal activity.

The lawsuit, filed in San Francisco, seeks information from a number of federal agencies under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) who are listed as defendants in the case.

The EFF is asking for records from the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Justice, Treasury, the CIA, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence concerning their use of social networking Web sites as investigative, surveillance and data collection tools.
