Re: Furthermore

At least in the US, the legal system governing personal information has become so convoluted that it is virtually impossible for to assign accountability.

Actually, the legal system is so convoluted that no company can credibly claim an ability to protect client information from warrant free backdoor surveillance. Strictly taken, no EU company can afford the use of a US based service provider without placing themselves wilfully in non-compliance with EU privacy law demands. But hey, that's such a large political elephant that everyone will rather vote for enlarging the room so they can navigate around it, then deal with the beast itself.
