U.S. Loosens Gag on Secret Demands for User Info

Washington, January 29 (RHC)-- The Barack Obama administration has loosened restrictions on what Internet companies can reveal about how frequently the government secretly demands information about users. But the new rules still bar companies from revealing details, including the nature and amount of data collected by the U.S. government.

The new rules come after tech companies sued for permission to release more data on the requests. The American Civil Liberties Union, the ACLU, called the rules a "critical step," but said more transparency is required, including about requests the tech companies are not aware of.
