Something a little different than just compliance, myself I thought they didn't have much choice in compliance, but this puts a little twist in the
tale. Now I know the Huff post has a video with said lawyer talking about this, but I cannot yet get the actual page for that video, although it will
be in the scrolling video block on any given page at the Huff. I will update this post ASAP.
From The Guardian:
The senior lawyer for the National Security Agency stated unequivocally on Wednesday that US technology companies were fully aware of the surveillance
agency’s widespread collection of data, contradicting month of angry denials from the firms.
Rajesh De, the NSA general counsel, said all communications content and associated metadata harvested by the NSA under a 2008 surveillance law
occurred with the knowledge of the companies – both for the internet collection program known as Prism and for the so-called “upstream”
collection of communications moving across the internet.
