Prism, a Surveillance Prison

PRISM_logo (1)The government program PRISM which was introduced in 2007, is a surveillance program which collects data from U.S. internet companies in an attempt to better protect national security. Skype, until it was bought by Microsoft in 2011, worked with PRISM to give the government data of many people who had no idea this was happening. This program could easily partner with a company such as Microsoft or Sony and begin to impede on citizens privacy with out them knowing. Both companies have claimed they have no intention to do this and will not offer the government their services, but can we really believe them and for how long will this last?
