  1. In case you've forgotten: Google sends Mozilla about $400m a year Mozilla has responded to news of the US government’s antitrust lawsuit against Google by saying it welcomes it … provided it doesn’t get hurt. Mozilla has weighed in on two fronts, firstly as an organisation that likes an open web. “Like millions of everyday internet users, we share concerns about how Big Tech’s growing power can deter innovation and reduce consumer choice,” wrote chief legal officer Amy Keating, before getting to the hear of the matter: Mozilla has a deal to funn
  2. The US government has filed antitrust charges against Google A huge legal challenge to one of the nation’s largest tech companies Photo by MANDEL NGAN/POOL/AFP via Getty Images The Justice Department filed suit against Google on Tuesday for illegal monopolization of the search and ad markets, kicking off one of the largest antitrust cases in US history. As first reported by The Wall Street Journal, the case focuses on search and search-focused advertising, rather than the company’s broader targeted ad business.
  3. from the COME-DOWN-TO-DATA-KING-FOR-ALL-YOUR-USER-DATA-NEEDS-OPEN-SATURDAY dept Facebook's new transparency report is up, and the company has released a baker's dozens of National Security Letters along with it. Thanks to the USA Freedom Act, companies finally have a way to challenge the indefinite gag orders the government attaches to its demands for user info -- a process it deploys thousands of times a year without having to run anything by a judge. NSLs are gifts the FBI gives itself. With these self-issued pieces of paper, the agency can demand
  4. U.S. government staff told to treat Huawei as blacklisted WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A senior U.S. official told the Commerce Department’s enforcement staff this week that China’s Huawei should still be treated as blacklisted, days after U.S. President Donald Trump sowed confusion with a vow to ease a ban on sales to the firm. FILE PHOTO: The Huawei logo is pictured in central Warsaw, Poland, June 17, 2019. Picture taken June 17, 2019.

  5. Cisco agreed today to pay $8.6 million to settle a legal case brought forward by a former contractor who accused the company of failing to fix several security flaws and continuing to sell vulnerable video surveillance software to US government agencies for years. According to court documents obtained by ZDNet, the case was handled under the US False Claims Act (FCA), which allowed the former contractor to report fraud in government contracts by filing a "qui tam" lawsuit on the government's behalf. Cisco ignored bug report In the lawsuit, filed in May 2011 bu
  6. Brad Smith tells Bloomberg he wants evidence backing up the Trump administration's ban on the Chinese company. Microsoft provides its Windows OS to Huawei. Microsoft President Brad Smith said in a Bloomberg interview that the Trump administration hasn't provided enough evidence about the national security threat posed by Huawei. Acts like blacklisting the Chinese company shouldn't be taken without a "sound basis in fact, logic, and the rule of law," he said. When Microsoft asked US lawmakers to explain the threat, they've been too vague for Smith's liking. Huawei is
  7. WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A partial U.S. government shutdown over President Donald Trump’s demand for $5.7 billion to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border entered its 22nd day on Saturday, making it the longest shuttering of federal agencies in U.S. history, with no end in sight.

  8. For the second time, Senator Cory Booker announced a bill to make recreational marijuana use legal across the entire US. The Marijuana Justice Act, which Booker and Representatives Barbara Lee and Ro Khanna announced on Thursday, would not only legalize marijuana but also retroactively erase marijuana possession charges from Americans' criminal records, according to Rolling Stone — a monumental shift in U.S. drug policy. Cory Booker, a 2020 Democratic hopeful, first introduced a similar bill in 2017 that didn't make it out of the Senate. Still, Booker has made it clear t
  9. But nothing is what is seems when it comes to Section 702 programs A closely watched case covering the constitutionality of a spying program has been thrown into disarray after a US government lawyer claimed an assertion at the heart of the lawsuit simply never occurred. Speaking in oral argument [mp3] at the Second Circuit Court of Appeals this week, the government representative told judges that it had not used a so-called "backdoor" search to get information on the plaintiff Agron Hasbajrami, a US citizen. Instead, he argued, the government l
  10. GAO report takes us inside Equifax from March 2017 onward, showing how a few slip-ups led to one of the biggest breaches in US history The US Government Accountability Office (GOA) published a report today detailing how the Equifax hack went down and how the credit reporting company answered during and after the incident. The report comes a day before the one-year anniversary of the public announcement of the Equifax breach that exposed the personal details of 145.5 million Americans, but also of millions of British and Canadian citizens. Some of
  11. US government investigators have lost a case to force Facebook to wiretap calls made over its Messenger app. A joint federal and state law enforcement effort investigating the MS-13 gang had pushed a district court to hold the social networking giant in contempt of court for refusing to permit real-time listening in on voice calls. According to sources speaking to Reuters, the judge later ruled in Facebook’s favor — although, because the case remains under seal, it’s not known for what reason. The case, filed in a Fresno, Calif. district court,
