Earlier this year, a Canadian bill that required ISPs to collect customer information was eliminated by the Canadian government. Since then, the NSA scandal has broken in the United States, which has caused a number of companies to simply shut down rather than give their customers’ information to the NSA. The entire NSA debacle has resulted in a number of protests with regard to the importance of personal safety.
Although many ISPs are still volunteering customer information, still others refuse. This includes some Internet Service Providers in Denver Colorado, among other companies. While several cases are still in court, making it hard to tell what will happen next, the privacy of millions doesn’t appear as though it will go unprotected.
